hi pokerspants,

I call his river raise. Again he is loose passive (85/8 wow lol) and generally when he raises the river like this he's probably got 2 pair +. That can happen one of 2 ways, either he got there on the river as well or he already had it and was slow playing. 3 betting the river for value is pretty thin in this spot... he'll just call with A2 and maybe A8 (we're beating half of those), he'll just call with K8, but we may well get raised again by AK and sets (and maybe A8) and are going to have a hard time 3b/folding aces up against a complete fish. So I prefer to just call his raise and hope I wasn't getting trapped by a set slow playing to the river.
