      By river you look like 3ok entirely. I.e. really strong.
      So I don't mind your bet size, attempting to get a crying call from Overpairs maybe and majority of worse 3OK. A normal bet size may or may not be better depending on if hes capable of folding 3OK. I think generally at low limits I just bet normal or even ship river because people CANNOT hero fold.

      In your mind when you bet small, you think maybe it looks like you've induced a raise from a worse hand, therefore you call. But because you look so strong, I very much doubt a normal villain is trying to raise you off 3OK. So I think its a fold after being raised. I imagine he has AJ, J9, JJ, 99 and 66 all the time going for a trappy river check raise because he has sized it badly and doesn't want to ship river.

      Its all pretty strange, but that is my best assessment of what I thinks going on.

      If he shows some bluff then I note it and never fold raises vs him like ever.
