      Villain was passive pre flop and had VPIP of 52% after 50 hands and PFR of only 4%
      His aggression factor was 1.0 with a flop bet frequency of 26%

      I had seen him fold to all Cbets and raises prior to this.

      Bad laydown? Would a reraise to test him have been better?

      If the sample size was bigger you'd probably even be able to justify folding preflop since you're a dog against a 4% pfr range, but over only 50 hands you can't fault a call there while being slightly deep.

      On the flop I'd bet more when checked to, probably closer to $0.2. When he check/raises on such a scary board i'd just fold, he'll probably only play better hands and the occasional bluff like that, no need to get involved further. If you feel bad folding top pair calling once in position isn't so bad, but i'm willing to bet that this guy will continue on the turn most of the time, and calling down for a stack there isn't gonna be nearly profitable enough imo.

      Hope it helps.
