      Villian played 6 hands prior to this and left afterwards.

      I thought if he called my 3 bet he might have a PP, high suited connectors and Ax. I called the river because I thought he was too passive for Ax and could be bluffing a missed draw or hoping to win with 99-JJ

      Hi,


      Hard to gauge his aggressiveness after only 6 hands and bad players play a lot of Ax hands. That said he's too passive to bet Ax he'll very rarely bet 8x/99-QQ, plus most of the flop draws runner-runner-ed trips.

      You can try and bet the river for value against all worse pairs if you feel like he would have bet Ax on the turn, and as played I'd probably check/fold the river.


      Hope it helps.
