      Hello cutegoldfish,

      There is no point in betting the river just for the reason that he ain't gonna fold any pair there while he is a station, more likely you didn't win the hand because you made a good bet but rather he didn't just have a pair. Had a hand which you would have won even with just Ace high, therefore just Check it on river and take the free showdown.

      Best regards.
