      Sure, bet turn for value, he would call with worse Kx hands and likely all his pair+fd
      I´d call river, since I don´t think 6 improved his hand, he may valuebet river Kx hand or bluff with missed draw

      Hello daisuke3823,

      I'd add as well that Checking behind and inducing bluff-bets from him ain't wrong either. We as well take pot control with that line, although betting would secure us a free showdown in case he bets big and of course protection from any kind of draws.

      Best regards.
