      I wasn't sure if I should have bet the river for value in this case?

      I had in mind "Small pots for small hands"...

      You shouldn't have those thoughts in your mind, you should think about their ranges so I am confident he has worse Jx, 9x in his range so I think I valuebet the River all day long there a 45cent at the very least, you can start out ''small'' to see how he is calling so you get more experience in this

      Best regards,
