      I'd c-bet $0.18, since I don't expect the sizing to make a real difference on his ranges when he's unknown.

      As played when he raises nothing we can do, just note somewhere or keep in mind he check/raised some low/connected boards BBvsCO, and if you find yourself check/raised by him a lot in late position vs blind situation, consider adapting.

      Popular solutions include:

      - c-betting less pure air that has no value anyway, like KJ here, try and see a free card to possibly hit the turn

      - not c-betting weak showdown value that you can't really call a raise with, like A4 no draw, basically the same as above with a bit more equity

      - c-betting wider for value planning on not folding to raises, for extreme cases since it'll put you in really uncomfortable positions when you don't know how far villain can follow through with it even when he's bluffing.

      Hope it helps.
