      Villain is pretty unknown but he has addiction to loose passive playing.

      Pre: It's pretty standard I guess

      F: C-bet for value against worse jacks/draws/low pockets which can answer. I don't want to "call his bluff" to bluff because of the above listed.

      T: I like pot control here because I don't have much value in the bet

      R: It's obviously fold for me with 2nd pair on such a danger board

      He played it so strange
      I personally don´t think he would bet 5$ with flush on the turn but smt weaker to get a free showdown
      At the same time don´t see why he should shove river Jx or weaker hands sot hat should make it fold, but I´m usually quite suspicious when tp pairs and his shoving range should only be trips or better.
      So consider on the game flow I migth someitmes call him down putting him smt like QsT or maybe some random Ax hand

      Hello AlexGerasim,

      Basically turn is pretty hard to value-bet, yes we have a draw and likely Check/Call can't be really a mistake against such a bet. But I would keep in mind that I would Check/Fold unimproved on the river vs such a push.

      There are like no reads to make such a Call profitable while we have only 10 hands.

      And as well 90/10 is rather loose-passive than aggressive player. I would rather take an aggressive player as like 90/80. :)

      Best regards.
