      Since most players doesn´t try some ridiculous river bluff with made hands, like TT/JJ then I think b/f is generally better
      About his line with nuts: I think if he calls pf ATs, he should c/r flop with A high flushdraw, but if he feels that he has more fold equity if he c/c flop and c/rai turn then he can also play that way.
      Since you are very often betting river with Kx+ then going to c/rai seems fine. Not sure you´re going to call his river bet with worse hands anyway that might check back on the river
      Edit: since he would call you down his Kx hands and sometimes middle pp-s I would still valuebet river and likely also b/c turn, since he shouldn´t have too many times flushes in his range
