A hand from tonights session.

60 hand read on Villain - 40/0/~1.0

I'm betting for value on the flop when I hit the ace, and to price him off a straight draw if he has just 1 heart in the hole. Planned to fold to a re-raise here but just got a call.

Then I get big action back with the shove when I put in the turn bet, board is kind of scary with the possibility of flush and straight, and villain has been quite passive up to now. Is it the right play to fold this one?

Looking back at it now I'm thinking it was. Does anyone else have any input?

Against a very passive opp, I'm actually going to check the flop. If the opp is as passive postflop as they are preflop, they'll only bet a big hand.

If the opp checks, then I'll make my c-bet on any non-heart turn.

When a very passive opp shoves... they basically always have it, so mucking top pair is an easy fold.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
