      Villain's stats after 30 hands:
      VPIP 54
      PFR 4
      AF 1

      Previous notes that villain calls almost any two and plays very different lines (shoves on flop with nuts, min bets with pair).

      I didn't see much point giving up the turn yet, but after I got called on turn, I started thinking, whether 3rd barrel is of any point. I decided to block bet on the river.

      Hello faronel,

      Seems to be fine, I wouldn't play it much differently. Vs such a guy rather block-bet/Fold the river than Check/Call cause he most likely ain't going to bluff with missed draw.

      Best Regards.
