      villain 38/0/ AF1 over 78 hands

      On the river i was really confused why he would bet so small, i was contemplating raising but i just didnt think i had much FE, and i thought he could make this bet with a lot of weak aces, plus he was quite passive so?

      Hello Castle93,

      Could be easily a trap or anything similar. So I guess I'd rather pick the passive approach as well as long he even giving so good odds.

      Another option would be to take the initiative back and even raise the turn but then we of course have to Raise/Fold it.

      Best Regards.
