      Preflop: I think 3betting is an acceptable option especially if we knew that BU is a loose and weak player who calls too many 3bets but flatting without info is fine as a standard play. We do know that this guy is a weak player though, based on his stack size (which is under 100bb).

      Flop: Check/raise to 14 or 15bb, no point making it smaller.

      Turn: I think it's a reasonable play to bet smaller (half pot) for value and fold to a raise. Remember, we are sticking with the assumption that he is passive and loose, so he can still call with worse hands but he never raises with worse hands.

      River: Easy c/f now.
