      Hello cozacu,

      Rather just take the passive approach while we even don't know that much the opponent. Doubt that he is going to float either really loose on the turn. But of course overall against that kind of opponent it wouldn't even be a huge mistake if you play for the stacks. He may easily even have there 6x/65 or even 77/88 or whatsoever hands. If he really had FH, would he ship like that? :)

      Best Regards.
