      Villain has VP$IP/PFR 46/7 AF=1.7 after 85 hands.
      Should I have played more aggressively on turn and river?

      fishy preflop but not so much after. First hand I would make some small valuebet (1 $) but check is fine also.
      Fold is fine here. Checkraise is quite strong from this opponent. AF is too small to believe him bluffing here often enough.

      First hand: I would bet again on the river. You had the initiative all the way and he showed weakness. Ace is a scare card and he should fold most of the time here.

      I don't think he is only calling better hands and folding worse hands. Betting again on river is pointless. If villain has a K he's calling, if he has a 7 he can call too. We have Showdown value - use it.

      Personally I like both lines :)

      I doubt he´d call 7 at first hand, unless he is really suspicous and thinks that we´re always betting the river with any pair
      I would bet river, since our hand in dry board is likely not the best and this is the only way to win the hand

      b/f at second hand is ok, he likely has there set or two pair a lot of times
