      Somehow I am not sure about this passive (fishy) play. When I check oop, opponent almost never checks but bets, and then turn also nearly always, river mostly they bet hands when they hit something. So if that is the case, what do you think of taking passive lines with TPGK and middle pairs? I play strong hands, TPTK, overpairs, aggresive, sometimes also those hands passive vs reggs.

      With KJ I think you can also safely bet flop and turn for value. He may valuebet and bluff with worse hands, but if you start c/c KJ then it is hard to balance out your c-bet range. Imo only reason to c/c him down, is if you afraid he would raise flop which put you very difficult situation.

      best regards,
