      from my limited experience with micro loose passive guys, if hes raising u like that, he probably has AT LEAST 2 pair, probably something good... fold to it imo.

      normally they would just be going call call call or call call raise with their shit overcards or 1 pairs or draws.

      then again, im hardly an expert

      Just fold the first time around, it's a crappy board for broadway hands. You have no idea what he's doing that with so you have no clue whether your A/J "outs" are live or not and whether you can actually push him off anything on later streets or not. Could be you're already drawing close to dead, could be he's doing that with 5x but doesn't plan on folding it anyway, could be he's doing that with pure air but he will continue to bluff until the end so you won't have a chance to actually "take it away".

      If he does it again a few times and you start seeing a pattern you can then construct a range for him that includes a lot of nothing hands and start pulling 3-bets or out of position floats on him.

      Hope it helps.
