      Hello phidelity,

      Actually I don't like the raise at all on river, he is potting into us and might even have us beat, therefore I'd just Call it. He could easily have in mind to Check/Raise the turn for example with flush and now missed and tries to extract maximum value. Sometimes we might even fold on river against very passive opponent since he is representing there a very strong hand.

      Best regards.

      I'm a new player and I may be wrong here, someone please correct me if that's the case.

      Preflop: Nothing I'd do differently here.

      Flop: If you had been early to act then yes I would check here, but you were last to act and everyone had checked up to you so imo betting here is almost always the right decision.

      Turn: As played I think checking behind here is good.

      River: Call here, or even consider folding vs a usually passive opponent.
