      Probably too weak to c/f the river but maybe not. The hands that calls us here 2 streets is Kx, 2pair, sets and Qx which picked up FD on turn and JT, I don't think he is calling gutshots here. When river pairs there are like just a few hands that I can get value of - Qx with busted flushdraw might call us because river pairs and it's unlikely that we have the K. Probably a small blockbet would be better here because when he bets there we don't know where we stand.

      With aces I would prefer betting myself 1.3$ and folding to shove- with Zoom you likely find enough players that call you down with Qx hands. Since he bet that small amount I think you get correct pot odds to look him up- you are going to see as often JT, sometimes AhTh or AQ than Kx

      best regards,
