      Villain: 15/10/1.8/489.

      The question should stand on flop action (definately I do not beat anything on turn, maybe QQ, but still it is quesionable).

      Fold a raise? I felt I can still be against a flush draw, maybe a nut one. I felt 3bet to see if he's actually holding a J is just too expensive.

      I chose a passive approach, but I'm not sure about the decision. OK, turn came 3rd club, that made my decision pretty easy, but what should I do if would have been a blank one, facing the same bet? I can beet bluff, I can beat maybe queens, but I'm drawing dead to any other card villain would play this way...

      If villain is passive then you should b/f flop, they don´t raise flop not that often.
      If villain is aggressive then I like making 25$ on the flop and calling shove.
      No need to take passive line with overpair.
      If they hit then they would bet for value, if they miss then check behind on the turn and fold to river bet.

      With his stats and my reads - I put him on "average aggression", that's why I got lost at this flop :D
