Struggling with C Betting when Flop is missed (advice)
I am a long time limit player who has started taking on NL seriously (recreation) in 2016. The problem I am having is c betting when I miss the flop. When I raise pre-flop or 3 bet pre-flop with hands such as AQ+ and am called in 1 or more spots, I can't find a 3 bet when I miss. This turns my hand face up as I check fold even with dry boards.
An advice on how to get over this other than firing a c bet or is it just mental?
If in position and fire a c bet, ok to check the turn in position for showdown value on the river?
I struggle as I play tight and always fold when bet into as it's dead money when I don't hit. Just looking for some advise or drills to get over this major leak.
