      Preflop
      Well, he's kind of loose, so I'd 3bet, building up the pot.

      Postflop
      I'd do the same, but would make a 1/2 pot river bet.

      Yup should 3bet there.

      For river i was making thin value, i didn't beat that many hands.

      I would 3bet preflop for value, bet flop and turn but check behind the river, that 9 isn't great, the value looks a bit thin to me now and villain has been betting hard.
      It just shows how tough it is to know where we are in a hand playing passively. Much better to take the initiative for ourselves. :)

      Aslo, don't assume he is loose after only 12 hands. :)

      It's only my opinion though and I'm not veriz.

      Hello Tiltmeifucan,

      Preflop: Could as well 3bet here cause you are against a CO range but neither calling ain't wrong to keep his weaker hands in the play.

      As played
      Postflop: If he had a strong made hand I would assume he is betting the river himself, so I don't even mind your betting and neither the sizing. Tx gives a straight already and still some 2pairs possible, so not much more value there anyways.

      Best Regards.
