      did he have 55?

      what would you do if ace didnt come on the turn against that passive player? c/c would make you commited

      Ace doesn´t really change that much.
      If he had AT, A5 or 55 on the flop, we´re still getting stacked.
      I think limpers don´t usually go crazy on A high boards, so b/f on that flop is also fine.
      c/c turn is bad, since if he has flushdraw then he can check behind on the river and if he has full house then he´ll shove it anyway.

      thats what I thought, ace on the turn is almost a blank, and I find this line very bad against a passive player. His AF is only 1 and he raises a bet on an A high board (ace always scare bad players), he has more than an ace, i can tell you that much.

      I dont think he'd do that with draw either, so bet/fold would be what I do against this player.

      If you really think he only raises you with a better hand then b/f the flop and that's it. But in my opinion we can easily be ahead.

      I think both options are fine: b/f or b/c.
      Actually oop, I rather like then bet/3-bet and call shove, since he would often check back his flush or straigth draw/weaker ace on the turn and he would bet/shove river if he improves to beat our tp hand.
      Just my experience says that limpers usually fold to out c-bet on that board or call with worse hands and if he should happen to have two pair or better he would go ahead and re-raise.
