      I decided to play this passively since it's a way ahead/way behind situation but I ended up all in nevertheless. Is this a good line?

      If it's an aggressive opponent I think this line is fine.

      But vs a passive opponent I would play bet/f on the flop and bet/c on the turn(since you're commited if he shoves).

      The problem is that when you play ch/c you don't know where you stand with your hand + you give away initiative.
      And vs these type of villains your value comes from getting them to call with all type of junk.

      A passive opponent isn't betting Tx here himself, but he will call you with Tx, draws, and worse pairs.

      I definitly wouldn't feel good calling 3 barrels on this board vs a passive player, especially on this river you don't beat anything anymore.

      when he pots it on the turn I think he is shoving river close to 100%.
      So c/c is fine, I think c/rai turn is also fine, don´t really see him b/f there Tx or draws and river may be ace that would either improve his hand or make wann fold your hand
      Anyway it should be also bluff a lot of times, so calldown is fine
