      Villain is 52/33 player on 143 hands who has made a couple of overbets and shove before which I believe to be bluffs at seemingly random times.

      Previously he has always liked to make raises versus bets and plays quite passively otherwise. I decided to induce on river and he snapraised. I thought it was a pretty easy call as he should have already bet Qx 9x or flushdraws.

      Hi DaPhunk,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Given that he checked the flop I would bet the turn for thin value/protection and wouldn't mind to even pick up the pot.

      Since we haven't really seen showdowns before we don't know if he can bluff or not or more importantly what he can bluff with. Flush draws are possible in his range since a lot of fish play them passive. Qx is less likely but the problem is, like here, that he can take better hands and turn them into a bluff. So I would rather bet/fold until we know more.
