      I agree, he's too passive not to have worse than TPTK here. You should fold before the flop anyway i think, or go for a reraise (but with KQo that's risky because you'll be dominated by calling hands). After the flop you of course have to call at least the flop because that was basically the flop you were hoping for, but folding turn or river is probably achievable.

      I tend to go for weak looking turn fold. Just cause ppl are generally not going to be bluffing, or making large pots with weaker kickers here.

      This. Or save yourself the troube and fold preflop, since that's exactly why we don't want to call with dominated broadway hands against people with tight ranges.
