      Hello DarkBlade282,

      What do you expect him to be donking the river which you have beat?

      Best Regards.

      Actually, I have no idea but he's giving me very good odds to call. Should I just fold the river anyway?

      I think it depends on the player type. You gave us no information on him apart from him limping in.

      He could probably make a bet size like that with mid pair and worse kings, I'd call.

      With worse Kx it's just a split pot. :P

      Well, I am not saying that you should be folding for the given odds but you must understand that you don't have much beat which bets this way. The only part you are hoping there to see is Jx/Kx hands which block-bet and vs that part we can still call it and hope to catch the split pot.
