Default What is your opinion on this

Villian is 48/0/0.58 over 170 hands. My reads up to this point are that he obviously likes to limp. He loves to slowplay his trips/sets to the river. I only once saw him overplay an big pp on the river when the board was paired. He ended up capping the river and losing to a FH. I wasn't sure if he thought he had the best hand or if he was on tilt for not raising preflop?? I doubt it. 0% pfr. But I have never seen him bluff, and everytime other than the pp incident, his raises have meant a seriously strong hand. He has never raised the flop and actually rarely bets it. All his raises come on the big streets.

An opponent who virtually never bluffs check-raises a protected pot on the turn. You are getting ~10-1, but with SB left behind coupled with dubious effective odds on a calldown, I drop it.

A passive player checkraising 2 players on a scary board like this gotta mean something. I think you can fold. If he had been a more TAG player I coould actually reraise this.

I think a call is the worst you can do if you play. If you play reraise and fold to any further aggression.
But against this player I would fold.

I call. Yeah, he could have a flush or trips but I think he could also have 2 pair or top pair. There's 9.5 bb in the pot now so you don't even need 5 outs to call if you're behind and we're not always behind (although it's a good possibility given your read.) If Villains got 2 pair you've got 8 outs. I think that this is a pretty easy call just because your hand is still very strong even vs Mr. passive.

I disagree with this. Why raise/fold when call call lets you see SD for the same price.
