      Opponent stats : 44/8/0,88 WTSD:29. I was thinking i can't beat anything on river. I put him on J or flush. He could possibly hold lower overpair. Maybe i should i try a blockbet on a river ?

      Use a hand converter please, as reading through this is a bit of a pain.

      He doesn' have a J because he would be scared of the flush and you'd be walking into a a raise on the flop and turn. Axd is possible, but so are 88-QQ.

      I'd pay the river bet... you're bound to be ahead in more than 46% of the cases.

      sorry but i do not agree with you. Opponent is pretty loose but passive. I am thinking that he thinks i will be agresive all the way, but he is too passive to raise me, because he is afraid to scare me away. He might have drawn the flush, because i noticed that these type of players overestimate flush draw. Also he might have 88-AA and i think he wuold play them same way. So to me all these 3 possibilities are equal and i want to hear oppinion of coaches.

      I'd bet a little bit less. Since I'd usually make a 2/3 of pot c-bet, that's what I'd do here since there isn't much to protect against, flush is not too dnagerous against only one player.

      Turn I'd play check/call and reevaluate the river.

      As played, it's a tough spot on the river. Against an aggressive player, I'm calling. But since this one is passive, folding is fine IMO.
      You could have tried blockbetting too, $4.7~$5. Since I believe he could call with worse hands as well.

      I can´t fold river against 44/8 stats.
      I think that I´ll rather making 8$ valuebet/fold, since he might look me up with any pair.
