      villain played 24/1 after 76 hands. I had seen him limp/call 3 times before, one time he donked flop, the other 2 he check raised. not much of a sample but passive preflop and aggresive on flop seems wierd not sure what to make of it.

      So from what I seen I decided to call his check raise on this flop, I was thinking he would cr a lot of Ax, Qx, pockets pairs perhaps some Kx hand here. T improves my hand but what would he call that I beat? so I decide to check for bluff induce. R brings an A with I think is in his range and he cant fold to a push because he is pretty much commmited here.

      better to just call river?
      considering his passive preflop should I expect him to be passive postflop aswell and he had a monster each time he cr, and fold right away on flop as I only beat bluffs?

      Hello yayasarika,

      Well, kinda close I would say. I mean if you said he had always nuts when he Check/Raised then I might even consider folding it right on flop.

      But as you went for the pot and put him on some bluffs then I am most likely playing the same way on further streets.

      Best Regards.
