      Hi nipbourne,

      I wouldn't cbet this board against such an opponent.

      His range is super wide, that is true. Problem is: middling kind-of-drawy boards fit super well a wide range. With that I mean a huge part of his range will have at least a gushot (and a player like this is seldom folding a gutshot).

      We don't really have that much equity on the hand at all if he calls, since from your 6 overcard outs we can probably discount the A and K of spades. Which leaves us with 4 outs at best. Not a nice situation.

      I'd just check behind and take a free card; against a super passive opponent with a wide range I'd try to drag to showdown and even be prepared to win sometimes with my A high.

      It's funny but many of these passive players will be more willing to bluff/bet later streets if you cbet but will be more passive if you don't bet at all. It makes no sense at all, and I never get if they do that as a "revenge" or just because the pot is bigger, which means more money for them to take with the bluff. Go figure.

      Anyway, bottom line is: board is quite bad to cbet vs. a wide range and a weak player; against them, try to play more for value indeed and only bluff if the board is very very good and your hand has no value for showdown.
