      Against such a loose-passive opponent, I think it's fine to value bet the turn. When he raises though and you're getting roughly 2:1, you need to win about 33% of the time. He could be doing this with sets as well as draws. If you give him a range of 66,22,AQs,76s,JsTs,Ts9s,9s8s,8s7s,5s4s,AQo which may or may not be 100% accurate, you have around 54.5% equity. And his range will never be all that much different, I think. Perhaps you could add some random two pairs in there, if he decided to call with some sort of suited ace, your equity doesn't drop enough to warrant a fold, because you'll still have 46% or so equity.

      As played, there's no way I would fold here.

      So I'd say nice hand :)

      Hello BjornArild,

      Nah, we should be rather betting ourselves and protect our hand. Well played!

      Best Regards.
