      Villain min 3-bets and plays super passive post flop. Is there any different I can play this?

      If river is not a scare card should I bet again for more value? I'm guessing I won't cause I'm always afraid of getting slowplayed/raised. And if I get value-raised, is it an auto call if the brick hits on river?

      There is a flushdraw on the flop and you give away a free card;
      You have an overpair, you need to bet on the flop.
      I'd check that river too, and after this showdown you might want to take a note on the opp, 3bet pre with J8s (Fishy Goldmine :f_cool: )

      Let's wait to see Judge's post

      Hello cheekopeh,

      I'd just 4bet and play for stacks, those players on this limit are just too bad. Although Calling ain't that wrong but I'd definitely donk the flop. As played bet the turn bigger ~$0,70.

      Best regards.
