      villain's VP$IP & pfr stats were 55 / 2 over about 100 hands, is this betting order good against such player, and is the check after river a good decision or should I bet there too (I don't think I would get called by worse hands there though?)

      Hi degnic!

      If you are sure that you are playing against a calling station (how much is villain's aggression factor?) you should bet the river again. A calling station normally pays you off even with bottom pair or a Q. If he raises you it's an easy fold but most of the time a calling station will pay you off with a worse hand here.

      Good luck at the tables!

      Ok....then it's an easy value bet on the river because his stats indicate that he is a calling station.

      I actually haven't followed much the aggression factor because don't know how to interpret it. but I guess I should give a lot more credit for villain's raise if he has a low aggression factor compared to high one, right? what is the "normal" rate of aggression ? and under what aggression rate I should think from villain that he doesn't bluff for sure if he raises / bets strongly?

      Yes, you are right: the lower the aggression factor the more credit you should give opponents when they raise. An aggression factor below 1.5 (without the preflop aggression factor) indicates that the player is passive. I think if villain has an aggression factor below 1.0 you can be sure that he almost never bluffs.

      Good luck at the tables!
