      As you told me many times is better to x/c here to avoid a tough decision? I bet river because I thought I can't really x/c - does V bet here with worse hands? Is he capable of bluffing busted FD (AKs, KQs) with his low aggresion and some kind of high WTSD?

      problem is that you can never have there Qx on the turn, unless it is quads, so you´re either giving up or have some kind of showdown value TT-AA and decide to call his river bet.
      So he may easily turn his TT into bluff if you bet that small on the river and as strong hand as KK I´d call his river c/r
      Also his utg open doesn´t really have too many Qx hands (likely QQ/AQ) and some players would not also open 44/55. So consider flushdraw missed and that he´d bet out river often himself with trips or better I´d call his river c/r
      About betting turn: I generally like check behind, since I think you don´t bet turn and shove river for value and can´t expect player to turn his TT/JJ into bluff and c/rai on the turn
