      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, kinda close I would say. For the given odds it shouldn't be even that wrong to Call. He might still even overplay sets there this way. :D But that's true that usually such passive opponent wont raise there with a lot worse. If it would be any higher raise then it would be much easier to get away.

      Although I guess I'd still Bet/Fold ~$1 while there are a lot worse hands in his range.

      Best Regards.
