      You have OP + gutshot vs midstack on a very drawy board. imo nh!

      vs this passive guy in the future try to make 2pair+ hands before playing for full stacks(if he ever BI for full) and if he puts up resistance. I wouldnt semibluff him, but instead get all the free cards I can =) GL

      He seems like a very bad player that is on an upswing.

      I didn't really want to see free cards because so many are bad for me. Any diamond is bad. Any Queen, King or Ace is bad. And a 6 is bad. I thought chances of someone having a made straight is low (I have two of the Jacks). My conclusion was just to get the money in.
