      Hello lukezo,

      Well, not really. If he opponent is passive then you should be happy to take a free showdown rather than 2nd barrel. You win anyways with your 8x all those hands which are going to fold and at the same time he ain't folding Jx and we just value-towning ourselves.

      Best Regards.
