      Final Board: 2 Q 2 K K
      CO showed K A and won $1.53 ($0.75 net)
      Hero mucked A A and lost (-$0.78 net)

      Villain is 79/0 over 90 hands.
      BB is 65/24 over 17 hands.

      Against the super loose passive fish, can we value bet this river again? Or is check/call better? Or even check/fold?

      I think the biggest problem with check/call is that he is passive, so he probably has us beat if he bets here, whereas he can probably call with something like 88 or Qx when we bet ourselves.

      When he bet so small I decided to call anyway since I was just getting such good odds.

      I think you should just fire thrice. I don't think he has the King really often and when the king double pairs with all the flush draws missing, I really doubt that he ever folds QX here. He won't give u credit for a King too often and that's what passive fish love doing.

      I think your bet size is too small too. You can probably 3barrel with a 80% pot bet on every street.
