      Bet or don't bet flop? What to do vs raise? Isn't it better to just play it passive?

      Button is an 83/50/0.5AF after 12 hands so it's tough to put him on a range here. He looks loose/passive so I'm betting the flop for value as he can call with worse As and maybe even some random gutshots, etc.

      If he was more aggressive, a passive line would probably be better.

      Hello ragney,

      If we take into account that there aren't just many worse cards what would kill our action on turn, I guess I might even sometimes Check/Call the flop and if he checks behind then we still can get his whole stack on turn & river. He might be even more inclined to Call with smaller PPs rather on turn than on such a flop. But as well CBetting is somewhat fine against that kind of opponent.

      Best regards.
