      Hello w4terman,

      Well, depends a lot on the opponent, against some I might even be happy to just 4bet and go broke there. :P Just one hand beats us. :D

      But overall if you would even play it passively then I'd still Bet the turn myself and protect my hand find out where we stand.

      Best Regards.
