      Hello Maniatrix,

      Well, against that kind of passive player you can as well Check behind on turn. For the given reason that he is very passive and from him I doubt we gonna see anyways a bet on river with missed draws.

      Against some more aggressive opponents there is an option to 2nd barrel it for protection from any kind of draws and get a free showdown.

      Best regards.

      I am just wondering how much of a % of the time he would have a draw or QJ here considering he is a semi-loose passive player. I would miss value from draws here by checking behind the turn.

      Hard to say. Just put the opponent on a range and then we can see how much of the range is going to be a draw-hand. According to that we can make assumptions.
