      Villian is 39/6/1.6 after 740 hands. I wanted to play with fish so I iso him light pre. On flop I have TPGK and he flatts me (fold to cbet 52%) turn A is good card for me to 2nd barell. Now I didn't know what to do on river. Everything worser he will check behind so he will bet only stronger hands. All draws missed. Would you bet river ?? He has only potsize bet there...

      He looks passive. I`d like to block bet the river something like 7.2

      Its ok how you play except of course river.

      Here after A you have to use pot control.

      After A he will only call your shove with better hand than your is so try to get to showdown with as little investment as possible. I think that is hard to play for value here.

      The problem for me was that he will check behind with worse hands so I would have to play check/fold.
      I thought about blocking bet but there is a problem with stack to pot ratio. He has only potsize bet. Still 1.6 agg factor overall is not that small.
      So when I bet and he shoves I will have sth like 4:1 to call. Check protect his 9x hands that he will check behind cause of the showdown value... He had sth like 25% fold to river cbet overall so I thought that he might fold some stronger hands like TT or weak Ax....

      I'd value river
      I could fold if he reraised me

      We don't really care about the ratio on the river since we don't believe that guy is capable of shoving over us unless he has us smoked somehow, which loose passive guys rarely will. We can bet like $7 that he can easily call with 9x and still find a fold unless we can put some spazz shoves in his range, in which case we'll likely be getting decent odds to call it off anyway.

      Hope it helps.
