Hi Justin,

I'm a bit suspicious here. Villain has taken a line that is an abnormal characteristic of a passive player. When an opponent is passive they tend to cherk or call rather than bet or raise. Given the raise size on the turn however, I will make the call either hoping for villain to check back or bet really small OTR or to boat up and stack off. I think we need to be folding to their river bet because I don't think we win 30% of the time here. There's just more hands that beat us than hands that we beat.
