      only 56 hands but he was action man
      68/28/ 0 3bet/ 44 cbet... he was playing his 2nd pairs aggressively and AK on A high dry board he checked twice and then bet the river.

      I call preflop because he was pretty passive post-flop and was checking most of the time (c/r and c/c).

      I hit nice flop, his pot cbet doesn't scare me because he was also over potting in few occasions.

      On turn I'm confused. He bets normal 2/3 pot ?( Before he was like block betting 1/10 or c/r. I decide to call because he might have draws, and worse Jx or even 9x hands.

      On river he checks. I was afraid of his c/r + we were deep. But now I have to value bet and I was thinking of $5. It was akward because I don't want to call his shove, since he might have KT or even some set of 22, 99. To be frank I wanted to bet bu I was playing too many tables so I ran out of time.

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      Well, if you are playing against such a play and even hitting your 2pairs on river then most likely it's a must value-bet spot. As you said yourself he is passive postflop then most likely if he is Check/Raising the river then he will rather have us beat than we him.

      Since I expect him to 3rd barrel all kind of 2pairs like J9.

      Best Regards.

      How much would you value bet here? $4,50 enough? Since we can still fold if he raise-shoves.

      $3-4 should be enough, so we would also have room for folding.
