      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: Definitely raise preflop versus just one limper and with position. Why are you afraid to raise there? He is a huge passive fish, the best guys to play versus with position and initiative.

      Postflop: As played I would fire the flop but the rest looks fine. I don't think we can bet/fold for a min raise.

      That's a good question.

      I think we raise/fold small given his line of checking flop and ck/calling turn.

      He rarely has a better hand other than some major slowplays (AK, QQ, JJ, TT) and can have 5x that call one street.

      However he is very passive so this is a strong hand so I don't think we can go broke here but a small raise would be fine.

      thank you,so raise to 8$ and fold to reraise.

      by the way, when I want to know if villain is passive fish who fold to CB often or not, what stats I can count on? do you know any way to know if villain is passive fish or not?
      AGG %? fold to CB?

      I would assume a fish is passive by default until proven otherwise because most are.

      Passiveness can be seen from many things such as aggression factor or frequency.

      However the best representation of passiveness is seeing showdowns from them and seeing how they played their hands. For example one fish calling down TP and not betting river when checked it's considered very passive.
