      Hero shows two pairs, aces and threes(3 A).

      The villain was very loose and passive. After this hand, I though I should have put max protection for my two pairs on Flop and should have checked on TURN to see how the villain's reaction. Or there could be another way better for playing in hand, could'nt be?

      Hello anhvusa,

      Well, the case on river is still that you rarely will get called by a lot worse hands. I mean even if he is a very loose player there are still a lot of draws which completed, better 2pairs possible, flush possible and etc. Most likely if I am even betting the river then ~$0,50 and folding to a raise while he is passive or another possibility would be even to Check/Fold it and skip the thin value while I don't see him betting with worse.

      Best Regards.
