      Hit my set on turn but club draw also completes. Thus played passive and just called turn and river. Any raises here?

      Hello cheekopeh,

      Rather Bet the flop yourself and protect your hand from any kind of overcards and maybe even draws.

      But otherwise kinda of close spot, we most likely just beat a bluff there. I mean even something like 8x is turned into bluff. :( Do you expect him to overvalue any kind of such hands which he showed? Or capable of bluffing? Against rather passive opponents I'd even tend to fold my hand while couple of draws completed.

      Best Regards.
