      this opponent is extremely loose and aggressive with 70% VPIP and 100% flop and turn CB. i think that the calls on the flop and turn are justifiable since i was likely to be ahead. but how about the river bet? could i put myself ahead of his range or should i believe that he has a quads or an A?

      I would assume that player is betting his entire range on the river, so I guess call is ok. The main question is how loose he is barrelling that turn card. If the stats you posted are accurate over a decent sample, I'm fine playing call/call/call.

      he has less than 40bb, I´d just shove turn
      You´re very often ahead and you can´t fold your hand to any river bet, so I like shoving
