      MP3: $56.45 (112.9 bb)
      CO: $53.75 (107.5 bb)
      BTN: $55.84 (111.7 bb)
      SB: $38.37 (76.7 bb)
      Hero (BB): $61.10 (122.2 bb)
      UTG+2: $65.59 (131.2 bb)
      MP1: $39.35 (78.7 bb)
      MP2: $120.21 (240.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J 7
      UTG+2 folds, MP1 calls $0.50, 5 folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($1.25) 5 J 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, MP1 calls $1

      Turn: ($3.25) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.50, MP1 raises to $7, Hero calls $4.50

      River: ($17.25) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $15, Hero calls $15


      Villain is a passive fish VPIP 23/ PFR 4/ 3bet 1/ AF 1.1.
      On the flop I decided to bet because he is going to call at least 2 bets with a pocket pair that he limped and 3 streets with any J. Given his low aggression, should I give up on my 2 pair? And if so, where?

      Hello circoflax,

      Doesn't really make sense to Bet/Call the turn, if you plan to continue there then rather get it in. Most likely while even being in a freeplay pot I might be towards it. Can't really see him having a lot worse 2pairs in his range.

      Best Regards.
