TERRIBLE THINKING - you have already decided to escalate a betting war with this guy if you get a pair. You haven't seen a flop, you don't know what he has done, you don't know anything except if you get a pair you are going to barrel the guy all the way to showdown! That is the worst kind of approach! Sure you do want to get in a hand with the guy but you still have to play intelligent poker. You thought this guy was an auto-teller and you got your ass handed to you. Why in the hell would you think top pair medium kicker is such a great a hand. Because he has a high VPiP??? You still want to have at least an average hand to go to war with, don't you? FYI - that was a below average hand that ran into an average hand.
Passive is the opposite of aggressive - in other words passive does not raise and certainly does not 3-bet. If it does - guess what???
But each player is unique - you have to figure out what's in their head. The HUD is to help you do that. As some already said, those are PF stats and all it might mean is the guy likes to see a LOT of flops. He might be a demon post flop. Thats where you dig deeper in the HUD to find out.
You really need to forget about a HUD, forget about playing the player and learn to play ABC poker - which means learning to lay hands down. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that is your major problem. You won't lay down a hand. That added to overvaluing your hands leads to a faucet wide open on your wallet.
