      River: ($18.48) T (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      Opponent is weak losing player playing 20/13/3.3 for 300 hands.
      94(17) c-bet
      27(49) WTSD

      preflop: I think i have profitable call here in position considering that he is a fairly bad player with 94% c-bet.

      flop: I think just call here is fine.
      turn: we improve our draw, but I still think that call is quite ok since we will have <1 SPR on the river.
      river: i thought about bluffing, but maybe he is just checking to enduce bluff to all the busted draws. On the other hand he is weak player and im not sure if he is thinking on that level. Can I bluff the river?

      key question: how often is he 3betting?

      may be a raise sometime, may be a river shove, dunno
      as a default i push the river though

      How much he 3bets from BB vs steal ? Most likely it's pretty low because of his super low overall 3bet. So ur call definitely isn't profitable. U should consider calling only when he 3bets more than 10% there.

      I like the way u played this hand postflop. Shoving turn or river could be an option only when he has a very wide range. In this case his range looks pretty strong. As u said, he's a bad player, so he might even check an overpair on the river because T paired.
      If u think he's not checking overpairs and he will fold AK, u can shove the river, but still I think bluffing is bad vs so tight player.
