Hi guys, here is the hand I would like to get some advice on, postflop.
Should I be the aggresor here or do I take a passive aproach?

villain is 23/23/1.5 on 22 hands

You were the preflop aggressor. I would certainly cbet OTF and bet every following street until he shows resistance.

The problem I feel with playing as callingstation is that you gain no information about his hand. He could have total air, he could have a Q, he could have a flush. You just know nothing.

All you do is hoping he is bluffing and not beating you. OTR you face a tough decision and have no information what so ever.

I would have cbet flop.
- If cbet is raised, call. Check/call turn.
- If cbet was called, I would fire again OTT and call a raise if that comes.
In both cases prob check/fold river unless improved to flush.

I think I would C-bet this flop and then lead out on the turn if called. By just check-calling I have no idea where I stand in the hand. If raised on the flop, I'm probably pushing and hope the villain doesn't have a queen or a full house. When faced with a turn raise I'm probably folding as raising on the turn usually signifies a lot of strength.

Interesting hand, this.

Thanks guys, I ended up folding so we'll never know what he had.
