      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, Q.
      UTG2 calls $0.02, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.10, 2 folds, UTG2 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.23) 8, T, Q (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.16, UTG2 calls $0.16.

      Turn: ($0.55) 9 (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.32, UTG2 calls $0.32.

      River: ($1.19) 2 (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $1.19.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of queens(K Q).
      UTG2 shows a straight, queen high(J 6).

      UTG2 wins with a straight, queen high(J 6).

      Flop: I decided to Cbet with a TPGK here, and the BB Called. I think he's got Tens or Qx which can be dominated by my hand, or even called with a FD.

      Turn: He might miss his FD, and I fire another barrel.

      River: The 3rd :diamond: appeared, I guess Check behind is the best choice here with thought of he was playing FD.

      Are there any other better lines to improve playing with very Loose Passive players?

      Hello anhvusa,

      Well, if he is even passive opponent then you can as well just Check on turn behind and skip the thin value. There are a lot of hands which beat you and most likely he wouldn't take stabs on the river with worse.

      Best Regards.
