      Preflop: Considering we have a fish in the blinds and we are deep with him why are we raising 2.5 BBs? We should make it larger here.

      Flop: I would pot this flop here versus him.

      Turn: I would continue betting larger, pure value on such a blank card.

      River: Against passive fish it should be a bet/fold because he can have A2 (suited and offsuite) and A3 that got there. Yes he can bluff draws but usually passive fish don't do that.

      HE can also have some slowplayed sets here ocassionally.
