      On a scale from 1 to "holy jesus what is this fish doing on our strategy site", how bad is this hand? I sort of wanted to reraise him preflop but KJo is weak... ehhhh and then i got stuck playing passively... How would you play this hand?

      Hello,

      Preflop calling against a minraise is fine.

      On the flop with TPGK check/calling is fine.

      Turn doesn't really change much and check/calling again is fine.

      On the river we have an easy call but I think that against this sizing we could consider raising.

      Best,

      You mean... playing this entire hand passively might have been the right decision? :f_o:
      Thanks for the feedback :D

      Yeah that's what I mean.

      There's nothing you can do if he shows a better hand, since he could have many worse.
