      I would definately valuebet river against such a loose passive player.
      I would probably even bet around $6 to get more value from 8x PP & 9x if he has it there

      So not just a thin valuebet but a proper value bet huh. Its just that there's so little he could be calling down till river with which is why I decided to go for a thin value bet.

      I mean he wasn't calling down any draws. since there weren't any. I don't expect him to call down with a 9x hand, perhaps A9 or K9. So its 8x hands or Qx hands or he's slowplaying a 2x hand. Manytimes he'll also have some Ax hands he called down till river to see if he hits an A. So the question is, what would he really call a full fledged $6 value bet with?

      But again is WTSD is high so he might just call much weaker hands.

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Most likely you could still Bet the turn a bit bigger and also the river. :) But overall I don't mind your sizing on the river neither. Most likely he would also call even a bit bigger bet.

      Best Regards.
