      Since your opponent seems Loose and Passive if you are checking then I am looking to check/fold to a decent bet as villain will often check behind with his marginal top pair type hands and only value bet 2pr +.

      With the above in mind we can try to get some thin value from villain by blockbet/folding the river, since villain will call down a lot with weaker Qx but only raise with 2pr+

      Hello fractalsonfire,

      I'd most likely Bet it bigger on the flop & turn. On the river you can consider doing a smallish value-bet ~1/2 or even less but Checking behind is totally fine to take a look at his hand and maybe take a note.

      Best Regards.
