      River: ($9.33) 5 :club: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      Opp from the 20 hands I played seemed like a fish, 53 vpip 21 pfr 2 af 20 wtsd
      I isolated only 0.40c as I OR 3 BB from BU only,and I add 1 BB for every limper.
      A lot of times he will limp Ace-rag, Axs and so I decided to go broke there for 45 BBs.
      Can I fold on the turn against this opp???Should I take a more passive line here???
      Thanks.

      Hello h0m1e,

      Preflop: Against such an fish I don't really like to raise with such hands since we will never know where we even hit our TP type of hand. I'd just fold.

      As played
      Flop: Raising here is totally fine since we still have to protect from any kind of draw and we will get information from his hand, also get value from Jx or such type of hands.
      Turn: As he decides to bet again into us and this time so big, I am more inclined to fold it here, since he doesn't seem to be like that aggressive opponent, either he ain't going to showdown, more likely he has a strong hand here than a weaker ace. He still could have hands like Jx or even better aces which easily beat us and I never expect him to bet into us with just draw here, rarely.

      Best regards.

      I'll be more careful when passive fish starts betting big into me.
      He actually had JTo.
      Thanks for the analysis .

      Yep, that's exactly what I was thinking of, his bet small flop & bet bigger on turn even after our raise could easily indicate to at least such hand. And you are welcome, glad to help! Good luck on the tables!
