Villain(36):53/6/1.7

Should we be stacking off here vs this villain?

Hi dirt eh

As played I don't think that a villain with loose passive stats will be check shoving the turn with worse than KQ so I would elect to fold vs most player types, especially the passive ones.

In 4 way pots where we flop top pair on relatively dry boards I tend to play it passively and the reason for that is to avoid bloating the pot.

I think a better line would have been to bet flop check turn with the intention of calling most bets or checking flop and betting both the turn and river for value. This way we won't be forced into playing our hand for all of our chips.

You've raised from UTG and have c bet flop and barreled the turn so if the sb is paying any attention he should be putting you on a strong hand, it's very unlikely that you're showing this much aggression with nothing so I think that villains range has you crushed, especially if he's passive. I would expect him to show up with hands like A3s/43s/66 and perhaps AK from time to time.

Cheers, Chris.
