      Looked rather passive postflop, and has a wtsd of 46% based on the small sample we have on him.

      I figured he probably doesn't have many 5xs in his range, and he'll have an AQ-AJ-like hand a lot of times. Is it ok to valuebet the river? He's not repping much with that raise, but until I have more info I can't really assume he bluffs like this, can I?

      Preflop raising is good.

      Flop and turn looks good.

      As played, I prefer betting like $2.3-$2.5 on the river.
      When you bet like this and he raises I think it's kind of close whether to fold or not. I wouldn't say that folding is bad, but you might have inclined him with this bet and he could go for a raise with some weaker two pair.

      I agree, which is why I kinda hate betting this small against rather unknown players, because I'm always afraid of being raised, he just looked passive at the time. I'm leaning towards calling now, I just realllly don't see the better hands he could have here.

      I really wanted to make sure he calls with AQ/AJ though, and I wasn't convinced he would if I bet bigger.
