      We have 4.6:1 pot odds so calling is better, especialy vs AF 4.3, fold only if You have strong read on him. (eg. calling station)

      I would cbet flop. He might have hit 8 or 9, but there are many hands that did not hit - Ax, Kx, Qx, Jx. He maybe might fold 44-77.

      As played on the river 1.10$ bet would be better - if he has Ax - he calls and pays off. If he has better - he raises and you have easier decision - fold, because if you bet bigger on the river, he will less often try to bluff you I think.

      Against so loose player c-bet would be wrong because he's calling any pair here. And also almost any overcard since he's in the position.

      Turn play is ok, I agree about the amount.

      About river play I'm more inclined to play the way you did. Bet smaller and call miniraise. Many aces beat you, but at least you know what is his reraise calling range. I wouldn't be worried about 66s, more probably A8 or 9 or even middle set. Information is very cheap in this case and next time you know whether he slowplays set or he floats you.

      with pairs I agree. But we have overcards and we might hit later. If he has overcards - we beat most of them.

      Hello dudiloiu,

      Flop: That's exactly the spot where you can skip the CBet, I like your line. He will most often Call here and we will be OOP against him and we will never know where we stand, just overcards don't make him fold and we don't hit enough to make the CBet profitable.
      Turn: Betting for value is likely a must against that station.
      River: A lot depends on our reads here but often I don't see fishy people raising with bluff on river, especially min-raise, I expect to see very often there 2pairs+. Therefore it could be even possible to fold but if you want to make notes on him for further play you can make the Call since sometimes you might be even ahead against such an AF.

      Best regards.
