      Oponent was passive. I seemed scared of the A on turn well...i think if he didnt had A he would be too, plus he had flush draws with A...dont see him betting worse on river

      Why do we 3bet in the first place and why do we make it so small?

      I'd bet around $2 and fold to a raise.

      Checking back the turn and reevaluating the river is fine. This card is rather bad for our hand, since he could have Ax and also will probably fold his worse hands.

      On the river I prefer folding against a passive opponent.
