      Nonexistent sample for villains fold to 3-bet, but as he opens so wide, he most likely will fold often enough.

      On such a board c-betting is reasonable. He will fold AQ, AJ, sometimes PP`s. Also I got a backdoor FD and more barreling cards on the turn.

      This turn bet basically comes down to, if villain is capable of folding 88+
      Should I rather check against passive villain?

      Probably worst river imaginable.

      I don't mind bluffing preflop but I'd make it $0.44.

      I think cbetting the flop is fine. He could fold a lot of hands plus we have some backdoors to barrel again.

      I think betting the turn again is fine here.
      He might fold PPs plus some floats so I think betting is good here.

      As played, there's no reason to bet the river here on this card so giving up is good.
