      I often see no difference in how loose-passives play flush draw or some mid-bot pair. I think check behind turn is better than bet?

      I'm not making a cbet here. UTG2 isn't folding much, + most of his range has really good equity vs 22. As played, just checking down from turn.

      Depends on the player really, while it is true that a flop usually hits a lot of different hands somehow and giving up with almost no equity is fine, there are still plenty of hands that a 50 vpip fish will fold if he's the type to play fit-or-fold on the flop. He played 39 hands so far, looks at his fold to c-bet% for an idea how where he stands on that aspect.

      Hope it helps.
