      Villain is not a thinking player, loose preflop, standard weak fish postflop.

      Villain had A2o. Knowing Villain is capable of doing this, would you play the hand differently?

      I think he won´t 3$ bet if you bet river his 6x or 77 type hand, so you basically have to bet 5$ and more on the river and even then he might call you down putting you on missed draw, so until you don´t know anything on the player I´d just go to showdown

      - since he can sometimes have there Ax hands, then bluffing river really sin´t the best play, since he isn´t going to fold tp to your river bet

      In the Spoiler I was talking about 3betting the flop. What do you think about that with that history?

      this can be reasonable, but since he is also giving up if you b/c flop, then you can also bet at blank river card and take pot down there.
      If he is raising flop with air, he may also do that with 6x and you can´t be sure he is folding that to your 3-bet on the flop
