      Practically unknown villain, posted OOP and limped his first 6 hands. I like to raise SB open complete often and take pot down with cbet if he l/calls. Not entirely sure about c betting this flop though, not that sure about my FE.

      after firing cbet and hitting SD value turn I CB turn and on river I believe his range can be quite polarised. His line looks like it has a lot of air in it to me and his strong bet size river doesn't look too much like a valuebet to me. Can I justify a call?

      I think that since we've established that villain is a fish, you would hardly expect him to be making 'correct' value-bets on the river. This is a situation which hardly warrants 2nd or 3rd level analysis. Let this one go, you will be losing 90% of the time here when you call.

      Also, I wouldn't raise 72o against loose passive-fish, just wait for better spots to exploit him.

      If he seems to be such a fish then I am not even raising it preflop, just checking behind and hoping to hit, you wont really overplay such opponent that often. On flop I would likely bet a bit more, at least ~$1.40. On river I am giving up, looks like we are beaten.

      Best regards,
