Villain duty519 was 73/16 after 106 hands, 3 bet% was 4.2

He was pretty aggressive and maniacal. The first hand he entered, he 3bet me huge, 5 x my PFR, he got 4bet shoved by another fish and he called. He turned over K5o, while fish turned over Q8s lol. And yes duty519 won.

Once, he called flop shove when he had a gutshot draw and lost to TPTK.

Also, he played aggressively with flush draws, donking into the PFR to take down the pot. Twice, he shoved when he rivered his flush.

For this hand, would you have taken the same line of betting for value on the turn, river then calling his river raise?

Yes, I like how you played it just fine. With the possible straight and flush present I think re-raising the river for value is a bit too thin, but I'm never folding to his river raise, he's wild and bad and may also do this with a lot of worse made hands (primarily worse 2 pair) and maybe sometimes as a weird bluff... villains like this that are prone to doing a lot of things that don't make sense, I'm not folding a set to unless the board is horrifically scary. Maybe. I think wp here.
