      Opponent stats 31/3 AF:2,7 WTSD:22 W$SD:50 after 39 hands.

      What do you think about my line? I assume he would raise earlier with strong made hands, so on the river I put him on 9x and busted FD,OESD.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      seems pretty standard. i like check/calling here rather than betting for the reasons you mentioned.

      villain is pretty passive considering his stats so im not sure he bluffs river very frequently, and he can possibly have 2 pair combos in his range.

      in the end i still check/call though almost all the time.

      Hello TheWinnerTakesItAll,

      Preflop: Raise it bigger vs limper + being OOP + loose opponent.
      Postflop: Both options are considerable. I'd act accordingly I see the opponent and how likely he is going to bluff. Which hands do I see being more in his range, rather draws or pair type of holdings which Call us. Don't see any problem shipping directly there either.

      Though vs such a guy also make bigger bets on the flop & turn to protect.

      Best Regards.
