2/5 decent bluff or punt? Line check bluffing a nit

Villian is OMC he limps a bunch and is up quite a bit from hitting straight and 2pair, but rarely bluffs. He's tight passive.. Hero has $700 and is covered by villian and most of the table

Hero is in the SB with KQo
2 limps, villian limps from the CO
Hero raises to $30
BB folds, all 3 call.

($120) Flop: AK7 hcd
Hero checks
Check check, OMC bets $20
Hero calls, others fold

($160) Turn: 2d
OMC bets $30
Hero raises to $150
OMC calls

($460) river 4h
OMC checks
Hero surrenders and checks

I felt like his small bet sizing was indicative of weakness and I felt I didn't have odds to just call down the turn. Seeing as I'm folding this hand if I'm not raising i felt like it was a decent hand to turn into a bluff because we block some hands and if were called we could still Bink the rived. Looking back I don't know if I like ever bothing to bluff this guy it may just be worth going for value

Pre needs to be way bigger. I’d go like $40-50, prob $45, $30 does absolutely nothing but bloat pot OOP with k high double fd.

Flop is fine

Turn is a little spewy, esp bc we block the hand that we want him to fold. Also i dont think he’s betting twice here albeit small with worse than an Ace

More pre
AP what does the turn raise accomplish, will he fold Ax vs one raise, I don't like it vs a guy who rarely bluffs
Likely Limped AK lol

this is fair. I think its not terrible because he limp called so i figure his range has a ton of ****ty aces like A9 to A2 but i think generally theres just no need to make this bluff

i figured my hand was good because we could river 2 pair and we block AK and AQ which are obv never folding. good point by the other poster that we also block king pairs tho which is bad.

the hand he ended up having meant my read wasn't too off but still lost...

result

Induced in a spot where it should be very easy to lose the min imo :/. Straightforward call and lead if you improve. Probably x/f otherwise if he's tight enough.

If you wanted to bluff I'd kick it off with a bet on the flop rather than rep a narrow range of slowplayed top set or turned 2p. I'm not sure I love betting this hand as a bluff either, but spazzing vs omc is usually a horrible idea -- especially if you're not putting in the last bet!
