      Hello Filipstan,

      Not really horrible, and we can't go directly all-in on flop, since it would be too big over-shove. As played, true that's his bet is kinda strong on turn, but we can't really fold there. We can easily put a lot of smaller PPs into his range also, which he is able to go broke there. With some good reads that he is some kind of passive guy and doesn't do such pot size bets with a lot weaker hand, we could fold the turn.

      Best regards.
