      Stats:46/19/0,8/357

      Preflop I think I should 3bet it in position for 9BB or so. That's mistake as I'm seeing it now.He had FT3B just 33% .

      As Played...

      Flop call.

      Turn call.

      River check behind or fold .

      That's my line . What should I do ?

      Hey Treyking,

      Preflop: 3-bet to isolate the fish for thin value would be better even though we are deeper (160 BB).

      Postflop: As played we can raise the flop for value and if not the flop the turn for sure. We don't want him drawing cheaply or not putting in more money with Jx.

      I think the river check back is also a mistake. Villain is usually on a draw or pair type hand. Pairs can still call there at least 1/2 pot bet so I'd make it $1.5 or so, and he is so passive that I wouldn't be afraid of raise (And we can bet/fold).
