      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      CO is mostly unknown but looks loose passive

      Obviously I had to bet more on the flop, I think 1,25 would do the job :)
      But the problem is the turn - should I second barrel for remaining fold equity?
      I checked in order to induce some bluff, but that was mistake because of 2 points:
      1. I dont have strong made hand, therefore I need more fold equity than bluffs even from weak made hands
      2. loose passive guys will rarely bluff
      So I think I had to push the turn
      As played, river is fine.

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Hey oeadipa,

      c-bet bigger, but I see you already know that.

      If villain is really loose-passive, then I like to just c/f unless improved, because against loose-passive villain you will not achieve enough FE with a push nor you can play check/call, because loose-passive will too seldom bluff and you don't have a strong bluff catcher anyway.

      As played, nice river shove with TPTK for value.

      Regards,
