      villain is loose passive for a regular pre, but aggressive post flop.

      I didn't cbet for it is harder to miss, than to hit this board and I did not expect many folds.
      Once he checks back, I assume that he can't have an A anymore, since he is aggressive and this board is way to drawy to be comfortable giving free cards with TP.

      So on the turn I put him on a bunge of pockets and a T or a 6. While a ten might call me twice, I doubt that a 6 or a pocket would, so I think a double barrel bluff should turn some profit. My question here is, do I rep too little, since I did not bet the flop? Against him I would be likely to check some good hands in this spot, because I expect him to bet and I do not want to be raised with an A.

      river is an auto bet because, even if he did decide to xb flop with KQ, QJ, KJ, I do not see him calling the turn. and all his smaller pairs have to fear me rivering something...because this hits my range at least somewhat.

      Hello Verum,

      If I decided to go for Check line vs such a guy then I'd also do that on the turn, no way I'd try to get rid of his loose range who could even be calling with any pair not to talk about just GS.

      Best Regards.

      If I understand you correctly, you expect him to call twice with weak pairs and therfore would not bet the turn.

      Also, you would bet the flop.

      correct?

      No, I expect a passive opponent also to Check behind the flop with an Ace. :)

      he was quite aggressive post...88% cbet is one stat I remember

      against a passive guy post flop...I would have given up

      so my question...would you play it like this vs an agressive guy?

      Well, then this is even more likely that he will end up having showdown value hands which are very likely to Call. So playing this way is more often going to be wasting money. Therefore rather CB the flop or nothing at all.

      If he is more towards CB happy guy then it means also that he is more likely to Bet IP vs missed CB and if he rather doesn't do that then does it with showdown value hands.
