      Stats/Reads:
      Villain: 32/17, BU steal 27%, passive: CB 25%, AF 1.5
      BB at the time was unknown.

      PRE:
      3bet here for sure is profitable, but calling is the best option, I think. Would definately 3bet, if he had bigger stack, say 70bb`s. As he is passive, I`m fine playing OOP.

      FLOP:
      I think, I should have donked about 1/2 pot. Even pp`s below 8 are in his calling range. Also he is very passive PF(CB %), so I can`t expect a bet from him very often.

      On the other hand - flop is very dry, so checking isn`t that bad.

      TURN:
      I`m betting for protection against draws, also for value from small pp`s, Tx, 8x.

      Hello dienaszaglis,

      If you have a loose opponent behind you then I don't really like it. Rather just 3bet it and make it for the fold equity. But otherwise seems to be fine, especially when the guy has even such a small CB then you can as well just donk the flop since it's not gonna happen very often that he CBs without having a hand.

      Best Regards.
