      In this hand, I decided to play it passively, as I have many outs and villain is playing every hand. Is this the right path against this kind of opponent?

      Hey GG,

      Would you mind explain and illustrate to me why you want to play this passively?

      Thanks,
      Gerv

      Well, in this spot, I know I will be aggressed by this player. I slowed down because my hand was only ace high until I hit the river. Should I be more aggressive or fold in this spot?

      (Vilain plays 97% of his hands and I had a read on his loose aggression too)

      Hey,

      If you read the articles ''What you can flop'', you can classify your hand here as Nutflushdraw + 2 overcards. That means you have a monsterdraw especially a guy who plays loads of hands (= more equity for you)

      You throw it all away by calling because you have Ace high and might miss the Turn hence lowering your equity & profits.

      Just raise the Flop next time. Any amount is fine from $1.5. Even shoving is profitable

      Best regards,
      Gerv
