Default $55 NLTRN - river min raise

Against what villians is this a push versus a call/fold?

12 hands in. This guy had bad sharkscope stats which made me want to push, but the thing is he seemed to be playing ok. He limped a fair amount, but raised on the button once and folded to a reraise, which I find this happens rarely against bad players. Also folded to a couple cbets and definitely hadn't gotten out of line so far.

Is this enough of a read to not push here?

I think you could have played this hand better up to the river. Pf is ok I could go with the raise or check. On the flop you need to bet 100-130. On the turn there is no reason not to bet, bet enough so you can easily push the river. On the river I am inclined to push as I think he a worse T/Air/one pair hand that you beat (ie AA/QJ)more then he has T9/J8/KJ or whatever other random have he might have that beats you.

pf is fine.
bigger bet on the flop.
turn is a mildly bad card but you should still bet, there are now a lot of draws you're giving free river cards to.
as played i would 3bet ai on the river, you're going to get called a lot of the time by a worse ten which will make up for the time he has a boat or a straight and you stack yourself.
