      villain's stats is 82/0.
      Firstly, I raised because table ninja made me do that lol
      and on flop, I CB because I saw K(however it was wa/wb board..)
      on turn, I hoped he would fold with PP..
      However, he was not reg so I shouldn't bluff, it's terrible play.

      Ok, so preflop obviously a big mistake as you mentioned...

      But on the flop, i see no reason to cbet.
      Such a passive player will call you with a very wide range of hands, which ofcourse are all ahead of your hand..:)

      I think he will call here with all his PP, maybe even A-high hands, his FD, maybe even some backdoor straight/flush draws.

      On the turn flush completes, i think there is no foldequity against some backdoor flushes on the flop, no matter the odds.
      And probably all PPs he called with on flop will also call here.

      Hello Gonchan,

      Against a calling station, this is a very bad idea. I do like the idea of just 1 barreling because it will fold out a lot of hands

      But betting the Turn or even shoving is not a very good idea because his range on the Flop is Kx (will not fold), PPs (With a will not fold) and flushdraws (will certainly not fold)

      That said I just give up on the Turn if not give up on the Flop
