      Hi axeboy

      Preflop: seems fine.

      Flop: I would cbet bigger ($1.40) as I assume it's 1/2 pot bet generates less FE vs loose passive players due to the psychological effect of portraying weakness on low flops. But it may be just me.

      Turn: vs loose passive I would not cbet again but rather c/c. Often I would expect to get a free card and whatever he liked on the flop - very likely PP or even FD - he is not folding on this turn. I assume that loose passive players assume you will be betting FD here :) If he bets big I would just fold as we don't have much implied odds OoP.

      However, if the guy is a reg I would cbet the turn as I would expect them to fold hands that don't have a heart in them and some lower PPs that floated the flop.

      Hope this helps

      I would just 2 barrel this by default unless you have reads about not having any fold equity on the Turn. I wouldn't bluff River unless I had reads too. I think you should bet 3 into 4.50 though, just to put a little more pressure on the weaker parts of MP's range.

      Nice hand.
