      Hello koosMaras,

      I guess I'd still raise there something like $3, he may still have like trips, or something similar which may easily pay us off. You can't just put him only and only the nuts. Although definitely just Calling there and picking the passive line is fine as well, nothing wrong!

      Best regards.
