      Villain is a recreational player. Do you agree with preflop line?

      Postflop would you prefer to try to x/r?

      As played do you see a benefit to bluffing river?

      I quite like your line. I would bet bigger OTT though. River against random rec I guess giving up is usually most +EV such card :)

      I would take passive line against recreational. Against 15% range you are flipping on the flop. Against his calling range you are behind and you have only 7 outs to be happy about on the turn.
      You don't get fold on the flop often and once he calls the turn and river are horrible to play (unless you hit one of those 7 outs). So what happens is that he calls around 80% of times on the flop, and then on over 80% of turns you face a problem with weak hand and no folding equity on blanks. So you need to continue bluffing recreational with small folding equity. Doesn't sound like a good plan.

      I would check and call if he bets.
