      Hi Tob,

      I think you forgot to post the actual hand.

      Please update the hand and let me know when you have done so.

      Best regards,

      Bogdan

      Thanks !

      I think that on the flop there we are better off raising there with our weak hand to try and take the pot down and maybe even get better hands to fold like 5x.

      As played it's possible that SB has weaker Ax but I'm not sure how often he would overbet that turn with just an Ax. I think I would prefer calling turn and then river but I don't think we can fold.

      I think raising flop is overplaying. Such passive guy always have something when he bets, probably a small pair or weak TP or draw, that he will not fold to a raise. Do we want to play for big pot without that many outs to improve?

      But I think I'd call turn and river, though we might be slightly behind his range. With A5 it would be easy call, but A4 here is a lot tougher, as he is representing more like A5 or badly played AA/AJ
