If i did get unlucky and went back to being card dead again i'm going to feel like he's not going to be hanging around for much longer and be tempted to play trash hands. Maybe knowing myself in the worst case scenario, maybe leaving was the right choice given my mind set at the time.
Why not just test the theory. Raise a crap hand and cbet and see if he folds. If he doesn't you lose a few bb's, but you gain the knowledge that he's not adjusting to your ultra-tight image. Or maybe he does fold and you win a little pot.
But if you sit there and wait until you have a hand, you don't know how he'll adjust to your image (if at all) which could make for some very difficult decisions if the pot starts getting big and you only have top pair or something.
