      Against the passive player I thought it was better to call the raise and try to hit the boat. Should I have jammed it in on the turn? Altough I really give him the flush here most of the time.

      Hi,

      I think b/c turn should be standard. If he is making a move then better let him bluff on the river, also you have 5s that means spade isn´t also that scare card for you. I would personally call river, but if player is really passive then fold is also fine.

      best regards,
