$2/$4 LHE, playing at the table for a while, the Villain is in Seat 1, I'm in Seat 2. He calls with a wide range of hands pre-flop, and is extremely passive overall (played for about an hour with him and he might have bet a hand voluntarily once).PRE-FLOP: I'm dealt :3h :4h A couple people call, Villain calls, I raise, I get 4 callers total with Villain closing the action. 5 to the flop.FLOP: :club: :qh :D Action checks to Villain, Villain bets, I raise, folds around to Villain, Villain calls.TURN: :ts :jh :D :5c Villain bets, Hero?Is this just a calldown while hoping he has Jacks, Queens, or Kings (that he slowplayed pre-flop, though I'm pretty sure even this guy would have raised those pre-flop if he had them)? Do you ever find a fold against this passive a player? I assume a raise would be stupid here, right?

This one as far as I'm concerned is very straight forward.Just call him down and if he checks the river bet it. You can never fold unless he flashes you his cards and a raise here could be just lighting money on fire based on your read of the player. You're probably beat but you have to pay him off since you never know when somebody is going to do something weird.

Yeah, I thought it was straight forward, but figured I'd do a line check anyway since I'm coming back from a two-year LHE hiatus. I did call down...and as expected, he showed Q-T.
