      Hey there,

      So my note on this player is that he opens a lot of pots from late position, and is laggy.

      Check/Call turn is to get value from his floats. Sensible?

      What if he "valuebets" river? Easy fold right? No need for blockbet/fold, as this sort of player will abandon mission anyway, after encountering resistance, right?

      I like how you played it
      river is difficult. Easy answer is fold, but if you think player can shove smt worse, then you can also make herocall, but a lot of times he´d check back even AT on the river, so if he shoves he is reping two pair+ or bluff
