      One of the times where I don`t like to cbet is this. Although that guy played at least 60% of the hands, I almost knew I was behind(more like a feeling).

      Hey Bubalus,

      I would just c-bet half pot on this dry board, because if you don't you give opponent a chance to push you out of the pot.

      Not c-betting A-high flops is normally better value wise but to play this way you need some postflop skills to know when to just give up and when to try to catch some bluffs. Also some stats/reads on opponent would be advised then.

      As played, nice fold on the river.

      Regards,
