Agree w everything you said here. However, having position is even more powerful when Villain doesn't understand the concept. "I haz a pear" type thinking is great when you get to value town them w TP hands, and hands are easier to let go of, when you're in position - think about how many people don't understand why position is important.
Against these types of villains, I'll generally start cbetting my air on the smaller side, my medium hands in the middle, and my strong hands (TP or better) on the larger side, depending on board texture - if they don't understand position, they probably don't understand betsizing tells
. I'm more likely to cbet high and uncoordinated flops, and less likely to cbet low and coordinated flops. I'm also looking for situations where the turn can improve my hand vs those where the turn won't for semibluff opportunities.
But yeah, a show of strength is a reason to fold if Villain's passive, and a call is a reason to check back the turn if Hero hasn't improved.
