      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.05(BB) Replayer
      Hero ($5.74)
      BB ($8.13)
      UTG ($9.33)
      CO ($5.24)
      BTN ($5.58)

      Dealt to Hero 8:heart: 8:diamond:

      fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.20, Hero calls $0.18, BB calls $0.15

      FLOP ($0.60) 4:club: Q:spade: 8:club:

      Hero bets $0.40, BB calls $0.40, BTN folds

      TURN ($1.40) 4:club: Q:spade: 8:club: A:club:

      Hero bets $0.80, BB raises to $1.60, Hero calls $0.80

      RIVER ($4.60) 4:club: Q:spade: 8:club: A:club: ??

      He's a fish, 46/27, AF=1.5, over 73 hands. In his wide range I see a lot of suited cards, but also some two pairs and random pair plus FD combos (4/8/Q/A+Xc).

      Whats our plan on the river? When we get there with our FH, we shove. But what about when a blank hits? C/c? How big of a bet can we call on the river when a blank hits? Or would it be better to block bet (c/f) against such a passive opponent?

      Cheers, Matt

      Hello inlovewithamsterdam,

      Obviously if we do hit then we ship it. But if we don't against rather passive player I guess I'd be even inclined to fold it than go for a Call unless it's really some small bet like he min-raises us on turn.

      And nope, it's no point to block-bet, you are just committing yourself with it.

      About 2 pairs it's the case that he can't have that many of them while we already block few 8s. Also would he even play that aggressive with them if he is rather loose-passive guy?

      Best regards.
