      I def bet flop and turn. Maybe a little bigger on the turn bc the board is draw heavy.

      Since he is passive, I don't like to check-call bc I don't expect him to bluff busted draws / or value bet many worse on the river.

      But bc he could call with worse I would bet $2 for thin value on the river and fold if get raised.

      Hello fellas,

      One of the hands where I would just pick a standard play-style which would be Bet bigger on the flop, Bet bigger on the turn and ship river vs his stack.

      As long the guy is passive we can't be even sure if he is betting with missed hands nor if he bets with weaker Kx/pairs.

      Best Regards.
