      villain is a big passive nit
      18/6/1 AF: 1.5

      once he c's back the turn i dont imagine him having any Ax/Kx and i dont bealieve he vbets Tx here otr..... so im thinking his range must be weighted toward some 89s or whatever

      i timed out but i wanted to call....

      I do agree he doesn't have Ax too much. He is a nit though you said.. no idea over how many hands though. This means he is less likely to vbet until it's "safe" imo. What I mean is he can have more Ax combos that you expect and definitely all of his Kx on the river and bet since you look so weak.

      Now, consider this: Don't bluffs bet earlier? I think calling 44 here is bad. He could try to bluff with 55 and then you look silly when calling. If you want to bluffcatch, do so with the top of your bluffcatching range or the bottom of your value range. Do you cbet all Kx and Tx on flop? If so, why? My final point is, couldn't you profitably cbet flop to make him fold underpairs and hands that missed? Your hand can't bluffcatch well OOP so you have better EV in making him fold imo.
