      Hello ILuvBeachVB,

      If he is so passive opponent what do you think he is raising you with on such a board? Do you ever see him raising any Ax for value?

      What I would do myself here is that I'd bet the flop bigger for value, if he has any kind of hand he is willing to pay anyways, the Bet wont change much. And afterwards mainly depend on the opponent, while he seems even to be rather passive approach guy and might not be towards overplaying Ax hands I might even just Bet/Fold it on the flop. If I think he could be doing that then obviously just get it in either way flat it and ship the turn or just raise the flop right away.

      Myself I'd be even towards Bet/Fold cause I rarely see those guys going maniac-style on the flop with just Ax and weaker one.

      Best Regards.
