      I don't have my stats in front of me at the moment. Only read I have on Villain is that in Hand 3 (below) he was UTG and limp-called my large pre-flop raise with Q7s, so he seems to be fairly loose. He did seem to be in a fair number of hands, but I wasn't paying much attention to him until after all three of these hands had been played (I was 6-tabling.)

      For context, Hand 3 took place the very next hand after Hand 2. Hand 1 was one or two orbits earlier.

      Hand 1:
      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (8 handed)

      SB - Villain ($26.20)
      BB ($9.50)
      UTG ($94.55)
      UTG+1 ($48.90)
      MP1 ($49)
      MP2 ($49.25)
      Hero ($10.25)
      Button ($29.10)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J:spade: , A:heart: .
      [color:#666666]4 folds[/color], [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $2[/color], [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], Villain calls $1.75, [color:#666666]1 fold[/color].

      Flop: ($4.50) 8:club: , 2:spade: , 8:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]

      River: ($10.50) Q:club: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]

      Any thoughts on all three hands are appreciated,

      Hand 1.)
      Very well. :)

      Hand 2.)
      They often minraise Medium Pocket Pairs to build a Pot if they hit their set, and with your reads your push on the Flop was good. But you were Pot committed anyway and go either broke or double up here. So I like that hand even against Unknown. :)

      Hand 3.)
      Hmm yeah against loose passive Players (reads) I play check/fold here, otherwise I push as well.

      OK. Unfortunately I didn't have that read on him until after this hand, but I'll definitely remember that for next time. I'll look at my stats for this guy when I get home to confirm whether he is truly loose-passive as I suspect he is.

      Thanks as always,
