      He is a passive calling station, but I think he would raise 2 pair on the turn. So when he raises the river, it really looks like a 9. On this drawy board, straights are always possible when they want to keep calling.

      Maybe check/call a small river bet, or check/fold if he overbets. With his AF, he is only betting better hands. I think he will check behind with only one pair.

      You could blockbet/fold about $5, and still have half a stack, and he will probably only call if he just has a pair.

      I like this line or c/c small bet.
      I prefer block betting though, as you might get value from 1pair type.


      Flop and turn are good IMO.

      I´d likely bet more on the flop and turn, since he could have there a lot of draws.
      As payed: 5$ river bet seems fine and then fold to shove or c/f to shove, strong bet.
