      I know very little of stats still, but doesn't his 30% vpip + such a low aggressive factor and pre-flop raise make him a calling station, giving you little fold equity for a steal?

      Don't steal when you got loose stats on opponent ánd when the sample is not applicable.

      As played, I would call the river. it can complete a flush but the 6 also can complete his straight.

      Best regards,
      Gerv
