      Hey,

      Turn is a super duper obviously clear bet. That card gives him too much equity for a redraw with made hands plus you can never improve and they don't turn mediocre hands into bluffs. You get called by worse and keep the initiative, having way better river playability as well.

      Given your turn check, your play should be to call the river on that blank, since his sizing is not that unusual.

      LE: You also specified he is passive, makes it a clear cut turn bet because he doesn't bluff or vbet thinly, he calls too loose.
