      I think I usually just fold this pre. Can a call be ok?

      I don't think the river blockbet is good, as I don't see any worse hands he could call with, and he's passive anyway.

      Raise pf, cbet flop and try to check it out if he calls flop if he's that passive. No need to barrel 2/3 times with mediocre hand vs a callingstation.

      Either raise or fold pf.
      Limping is very bad being oop.
      I would c/f turn, since you have very weak hand.
      AS played c/f river is better than donking into 1/2 potsize bet. Which worse hands would call? or which better hands should fold 1/2 potsize bet?
