      Villain is a loose and passive player.

      I'm having a hard time handling these mindonkbets on the flop. I usually just raise them, and if I haven't hit the flop/turn, I check the turn back.

      River is meh, should've been a fold. But I talked myself into him having a draw on the flop.

      So: What to do on the flop?
      And the turn, do I barrel or check back?

      Hi Liquid,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: We have some showdown value and equity in the hand so I'd just call there (plus his stack is really small).

      As played we can fold the river because we only beat random bluffs and fishy guys like him can block/value bet weaker pairs (5x+) like this.
