      I think flop play is std. What would you do on turn? This under halfpot bet seems to be probably a draw, or Jx maybe, but I don't think it can be a strong hand most of the time.

      quite sick when he seems to be reasonably tight-passive postflop, maybe wtsd is from some limped pots?

      anyway when this kind of guy does it i think this seems more like a fish "lure you in" line, also don't really think that he will play AJ like the nuts but i'm a station so i probably call/call/call on most non-spades hoping for some random draw. :f_biggrin:

      Hi Kimi,

      Since we have such a huge fish behind we should look at raising bigger preflop.

      As played I would lean towards a bet/fold as nitty as it seems. Villain has not gotten out of line so far and seemed quite passive. This board has a ton of 2p and even made straights available so unless you have any reason to think that he is tilted (ex: we took some money from him recently or he got stacked) or that he can raise Jx I would look at folding.
