There are some statements in this thread where i need some further information from you guys, because i do not agree unless you explain me your thought process better
"Given his passive tendencies i would just check"
If he is passive he will not raise us a high% of time so betting for value with our draw and overcard(s) doesn't seem bad to me - I mean, we have a lot of equity and he will not raise us off our hand all that often.
"I'd expect villain to check back with some hands that would call a bet, probably
including 6x. "
Our equity vs 6x is good, and we can fold out this specific hand easily on later streets.
"we can't barrel without hitting"
if he flat calls this flop i think his range is very capped and we can barrel a lot of turns (A,K,Q,J,7 and even other low cards that makes us flushdraws, or to set up a River jam)
"Check is optimal option because if we cbet he is often raising and we cant continue. Thanks guys!"
Why do you think he is raising often?
"I always wait until I really got something against those players because he wont fold a lot of stuff. So just wait for better spots to get your money in."
I generally don't like the "waiting for a better spot attitude". But especially in this case it's not like we flopped nothing. A double gutter with overcards (agreed one is bad) and backdoor flush draw is not that bad
