      I guess this is pretty bad for a number of reasons.
      a button raise preflop would have been a good idea.
      isolate the fish and play in position. bread & butter, right?

      but what to do on the river?
      Mr. Passive leads out for pot and suddenly visions of QT are dancing in mmy head.
      no way I'm going to fold, but is shoving a good idea here?

      I wouldn't raise it. He has a straight most likely, so you can't really raise for value, nor bluff.

      He could have many Tx hands, e.g. T9 and JT, so it's definately worth a call.

      Hello William340,

      Preflop: Perfect spot even to isolate while you have the position. :)

      As played
      Postflop: I'd Bet the turn bigger for protection and otherwise the river is rather just a Call, no point to raise while we don't hold the nuts.

      Best Regards.
