      Is it possible to take any other line versus a passive villain?

      Given villain's awkward stack size and flop being 3-way, I bet like 2 - 2.10 to be able to overshove by a little on turn. If he had called the turn there, he would've been left with $4 for a pot of 15, but you have to play 2 pairs on a board this wet really fast.

      As played I think you have to call; you have to call 4.32 in a pot of ~14-15 which means you get 3:1, only need to be good here 25% of the time so even though he beats you most of the time I think its reasonable to assume that he bluffs/spazzes with worst stuff often enough.

      you have too much equity to b/f turn, so I think b/c turn is perfectly fine. Also I would prefer betting turn to make sure all the money goes in with the two pair.

      best regards,
