      Hello, I 3-bet preflop because I don't really want to be OOP and without the initiative. Anyways, the flop looks pretty decent so I cbet, maybe this could have been bigger, but as villain seems to be a calling station I wasn't sure how big to make it. Now on the turn should I still bet and how much because a missed draw becomes quite expensive here. I don't really want to start check/calling but if villain gives me the right odds with 12 outs then it might be ok. Overall I'm not really sure what to do against calling stations OOP w/ draws, they always seem to be expensive ventures. Maybe I could just play passively and call preflop?

      His pfr is only 10 so a prf call would be better than a 3bet IMO. Because he's passive and has a high wtsd, you can take the passive line here and check because he will give free cards a decent amount of the time. as played i wouldn't barrel turn but c/c it unless bet is huge

      Ok thanks, yeh I was thinking this against passive players I think I'm 3betting too often with non premium-hands. If I take a passive line I can let the villain make mistakes rather than me being in difficult spots.

      Hello seanspurs87,

      Preflop: Don't understand the point of 3bet here? What you trying to achieve with it vs a nit?

      As played
      Postflop: 2nd barrel the turn cause of extra equity and also having a FD yourself and might even have fold equity.

      Best Regards.
