    He seems to be a loose-passive guy. Against him I think the flop and the turn is pretty standard, but what about the river? The shove is good here? I thinked that when I'm on the river, if he has a flush he would raise me on the turn, but he didn't, so I thinked that he has a weaker Qx or maybe sometimes an 8x or a 4x here.

    Hi Nocco.

    I think your river shove is fine in light of what you put up.

    The opp here is pretty passive though, so it is not necessarily a given he would raise a flush on the turn (especially if you have been reasonably aggro, and he thinks you might keep betting), but he is not SO passive post flop (25% agg factor) that I can really fault you assuming he would. In large part it is your turn decision which dictates your river action when the 3rd Q falls, so if there is reason to bet top pair/2nd Kicker on the turn, then betting trips with a K kicker is probably a good idea on the river as well.

    Your turn bet left you with just under a full pot bet, so if you are going to bet the river for value, the only bet that makes sense is a move all in. Versus an pretty passive opp, I do not think there is much sense in trying to get "tricky" by betting to hopefully induce a shove; this guy is too likely to just flat call that sort of bet.

    So as I said, your line looks fine to me, given the info you provide!

    hope it helps!
