      I called his river bet because , his betzise seemed to me suspicious.
      When watching his stats, it does not seem like a good player

      His stats look fishy for sure. I would most likely bet more for value on every street to get the opportunity to shove for value on the river. If you bet like 2/3 pot on every street it will work for you.

      As played his pot size bet on the river is suspicious for sure, but we only beat a bluff I think and a fish could have 2 pair and even a straight sometimes and we need to win 1 out 3 times to make a call profitable and I don’t think that’s likely against a loose passive fish or you have good reads on him.
