      Villain is 23/23 and AF of 20 over 80 hands. He has raised the SB every time it is folded to him (x4). I have 3bet him x1 with K9 - he folded.

      I prefer to call with AT pre. I think I'm ahead most of the the time on the flop given how much he likes to bet and the turn is a great card.

      I should bet the river though? I check behind partly because I want to see his cards and partly because I am bit afraid because 50NL is new to me.

      If you afraid he might 4-bet you then you can just call. I would personally go again 3-bet for value. He would very likely call with worse hands and even if he would fold you´re printing money by constantly 3-betting him.

      Flop is not the best for you and unless you hit ace or T I think it is hard you to continue, even with spades I´m not sure if I want to call again, so I would likely just bluffraise him to 4$. I fold out all better Ax hands and also don´t give free cards hands, like KQ or 98 that might give up, but easily might barrel again if he feels you are floating too much.

      Turn cal is standard and I would valuebet river 7$. he would very likely call all his KK-77 type hands and maybe some weaker Ax hands+ you don´t see let him your hand even if you know he would most of the times just going to c/f

      best regards,
