      First off, I'm not folding this pre after a limp on a passive table with average VPIP over 20 and average pfr around 5.

      Should I have checked and gamble for him to bet again on the river? Alternatively, maybe I should have bet smaller. I put him on a set and since most people are unable to fold that no matter what you bet, I just shoved. I had been very active on the table so I also figured he might put me on a bluff. The other hand I thought he might have is a flushdraw with a pair, which I think he might just check behind on the river since he would have showdown value. I don't think this player would raise the turn with a naked flushdraw so I think he must have had something worth a showdown on the river. Any thoughts?

      - raise pf or fold.
      you´re just getting exploited if you limp these low suited connectors ep.
      postflop flop and turn is standard
      I´d personally would c/rai on the river or bet out 7$. Players would not call potsize shove unless they have there straight, because people are not bluffing these spots

      I had given up raising low pocket pairs and suited connectors on the table because I usually got several cold callers. I can see how the checkraise might be best in this situation yes. If he was a 50/5 donk I guess the shove would have more merit...
