      Hi Shyph,

      Preflop: given we are deeper and villain is giving us decent odds we can call this IP.

      Postflop: Villain does seem really passive over the sample we have so I don't think we can raise/call the flop and I really don't want to raise/fold our hand.

      So I would call flop and given that he bet the turn a lot smaller than the flop I can see raising being a good option with the intention of shipping the river. However, what's our plan if we get shoved on?

      I would also probably raise slightly bigger there.

      What would a good raise size on the turn be, between 40 - 45 bb?
      And my river bet should probably be larger as well, incase of the smallish turn river 65-70bb? Incase of the larger raise you suggest a shove works out nicely indeed.

      We don't have odds to call a shove on the turn, so my line would be to raise / fold.
