      Villain: 17,13 AF 1,4

      I just call pf to keep worse hands in play.
      What is best line here? I decided to just call down and if he don't bet to just bet out myself. I didn't want to raise not to run into AA, KK or set.

      dont like the PF call, even tho he is nitty. what are u trying to balance your calling range on NL10? :)

      also, trapping with QQ is a bad idea, even IP imo, just 3bet and go from there

      as played, flop, turn, id play the same way, river id vbet much bigger, AA/KK, maybe even TT-JJ is still calling smth like 3.10- 3.30 imo, if he has nothing, he folds anyways

      or you could bet like 2.95, looks a lot smaller than 3.10, and he might call you wider.

      Hi Chris,

      Preflop: For a 6 max games this should be a 3-bet preflop even though villain is UTG. Most people call here with pairs, broadways so you can still keep in worse hands.

      Flop: Considering we slowplayed our hand I don't mind raising the flop to get value from all his pairs. He is so passive that he won't bluff the turn anyway and most likely never 3-bet the flop as a bluff either.

      As played I'd actually bet larger on the river to at least $3.5. He bet 2 streets so he likes his hand and these guys ck/call river with TT-JJ and KK-AA all day.
