...Im not sure where exactly to put this, but here it is. Everytime he showed a hand, I was just shocked at how it played out. Some interesting notes on the opponent, too like: Limp in with AK, AA but raise 4x BB with AQs UTG...?

Loose passive style will win some hands, especially at either very aggressive tables or bottom levels where there will be overvaluing of hands.


But what I wanted to mention, Phil, is that I suspect the key to your opponent is that he won't raise if someone else is already in the pot, but UTG with AQ, he gets to open. If he's got a good hand, he'll bet/raise only if he's opening the pot.
