      Hero (BB): $27.07 - VPIP: 16, PFR: 13, 3B: 6, AF: 3.8, Hands: 105905
      UTG: $25.70 - VPIP: 13, PFR: 10, 3B: 4, AF: 2.0, Hands: 126
      CO: $28.78 - VPIP: 13, PFR: 11, 3B: 1, AF: 6.2, Hands: 300
      BTN: $27.10 - VPIP: 12, PFR: 8, 3B: 5, AF: 0.7, Hands: 301
      SB: $27.72 - VPIP: 15, PFR: 12, 3B: 4, AF: 2.7, Hands: 117

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BB with 7 :club: 7 :spade:
      1 fold, CO raises to $0.75, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.60) 2 :spade: 2 :diamond: 2 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.25, Hero calls $1.25

      Turn: ($4.10) J :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.75, Hero calls $1.75

      River: ($7.60) 8 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Villain has 35% steal and 87% flop cbet so I figured he would cbet a large portion of his range on the flop. I decide to call with the aim of taking my hand to showdown.

      On the turn, villian has 83% cbet and I would expect him to cbet with almost his entire range here considering the scare card. I decide to call another street.

      I'm not really sure about the river, I went with check-calling, but I don't think villian would bluff another street with air.

      Do you think playing the hand passively like this was good or should I try to be more aggressive? Thanks in advance.

      Hello Grokken,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Nah, your hand is played perfectly well, although I wouldn't really be planning to Call down the river unless we have good reason to think that he is capable of 3barrel-bluffing like that.

      Best Regards.
