      OnGame - $0.20 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG: $16.50
      CO: $26.56
      BTN: $37.89
      Hero (SB): $21.33
      BB: $38.73

      Villain is 56/4/0.4/42 over 32 hands

      Hero posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.20

      Pre Flop: ($0.30) Hero has T:spade: T:heart:

      UTG calls $0.20, fold, BTN calls $0.20, Hero raises to $1.10, fold, UTG calls $0.90, fold

      Flop: ($2.60, 2 players) A:heart: 5:club: J:heart:
      Hero bets $1.50, UTG calls $1.50

      Turn: ($5.60, 2 players) K:diamond:
      Hero bets $3.00, UTG calls $3.00

      River: ($11.60, 2 players) J:club:
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      I'm really not sure about this one, but now that I have thought about it I think I shouldn't 2nd barrel and just give up my hand on the turn. Sure I think I can get a Jx to fold. But he is callin with Ax, Kx, and probablly even Qx.

      Turn is one of the worse cards to barrel. QTs gets there, KJ has 2pair, KQ has pair+ draw. Nothing is really folding. This is a typical example of a coordinating card where you should always be check/folding.

      Now I think what's more interesting is whether we should bet the Flop. Yes betting makes playing easier. But if you know his stabbing frequencies, perhaps you could just check/call once and then give up. Cos I don't see better hands folding and I don't see too many worse hands calling if you do bet the Flop.

      Could even argue that you should just check/fold right away if he is really passive.
