      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is MP2 with A :club: A :diamond:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, CO calls $0.20, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.47) 4 :club: 8 :spade: 7 :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.45, CO calls $0.45

      Turn: ($1.37) 4 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.10, CO calls $1.10

      River: ($3.57) K :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.50, CO folds

      I kinda have the feeling that they are a bit overplayed. I mean they are played risk too extract the most value out of this opponent. Do you mind it? Should I adopt my raise sizes to specific opponents?

      Hi, Sikac!

      No and yes for your questions.

      Betting big for value against a passive call-happy player is the way to go, nice hand.

      Against a very bluff-happy opponent one could check/call this river since the K weakens his range quite a bit and he might have various missed draws that can't call river (except FD+K but that's very small portion of his big range).

      But since this guy is so passive just go bet/bet/bet, bet again if another street comes, and you can do it big - especially on drawy boards. No need to balance at all since: a) you'll probably not see him again; b) he's probably not even noticing/taking notes and will not even remember you.
