      Villian is 52/4.5/2/ over 112 hands.
      He is kind of passive player, who playes post-flop mainly with good made hands.

      I don't know hot to get max value from him.
      Does my line, c/c turn and bet river is fishy?
      I did;nt want to scare him away by c/r turn.

      I like your flop bet cause it cloaks your hand. Villain is stupid enough to min-raise, giving you perfect odds to draw for your flush. As played, ye check the turn cause villain took initiative.

      If you say villain is passive a river donkbet is ok here imo cause I want value. Against an aggresive player I am checking this towards villain again on the river cause I think he'll bet again after which I can shove my money in.

      Raise turn, the pot is only $1.4 and you have about $7 effective behind, if you want to be able to take all his money without counting on a passive player to inflate the pot on his own accord (which you shouldn't ever expect really), you have to raise it up right there. Make it $2.3 or something similar to set up a less than pot size river bet and shove the river into him.

      Hope it helps.
