      Hi,


      Too bad it's not really enough of a read to conclude anything in that spot. How tight?

      If you're calling against a range of AK/TT+ planning to fold to a c-bet on such dry boards, maybe you're better off not calling preflop since you'll almost never find a situation that suits your liking against that guy.

      If he's also capable of 3betting light sometimes, you can justify 4betting and calling it off, or calling in position but you have to peel some c-bets on dry boards.

      Not sure exactly how the fact that he made a huge c-bet modifies his range, it's dumb no matter what on his part. Folding is fine postflop. Just make sure you're not calling preflop exclusively to fold all the time postflop.


      Hope it helps.
