Villain is 26/0 and AF 1 on 130 hands.

My plan from the beginning was playing for stack. I iso bigger than usual (looking back, could do bigger). Bet big on flop (could be bigger, too), bet big on turn and get raised. Can i even consider folding to this amount being the guy so passive?

I ran a hand range calculator here and it says its a fold. I gave the villian a pretty strong range of
JdJh, JdJc, JhJc, TdTh, TdTc, ThTc, AsKs, AsQs, KsQs, As9s because they are rarely bluffing when they do this at the 2nl 5nl levels

Hi Flopes,

I don't think we want to bet bigger on the turn, I think we should be betting smaller. This card is pretty bad for his range, a lot of which are top pair/2nd pair (like 77) on the flop, by betting bigger we are putting too much pressure on his weakened range.

Regardless, as played I can't fold fast enough to a super passive guy c/r all in, he's going to have a flush almost always here and probably a lot of combos of which we are drawing dead to.

Betting smaller on the turn will help string along his hopeless hands that have terrible equity, while also allowing us to get away easier the times he's just flushed us.
