      When we shove the worse Villain he might continue is AcX.
      On the other hand Villain is passive, so we are not sure he raises AcX hands instead of call. Additionally I doubt he has pure bluffs ever.

      So shoving in my opinion is worse choice.

      I would consider call or fold. Vs normal player prob call and vs this Villain prob fold.

      I would fold the flop. We don't draw to the nuts, we are OOP and I think this guy's raising range is pretty nutted, so I think folding is best.
