      Hi,


      Can't really fault any line there against an unknown limp/caller as long as you don't go broke with it somehow. Check/calling the flop is fine against somewhat aggro/bluffy players since you won't like them raising your c-bet. C-bet/folding is fine against loose passive guys that will still call you there with any pair and all sorts of 2x/4x hands with a gutshot.

      When he just calls and makes a weak-looking bet on the turn i don't mind check/folding nor check/calling, most likely I'd check/call with those odds. He can certainly have worse sometimes provided he's at all aggressive and he won't always bet the river. Especially if it looks like i'm going to be isolating that guy all day long, I don't mind spending 10bb in that spot to get to know him better when it's possible i'm ahead sometimes.


      Hope it helps.
