      This hand can be played in so many ways! :)

      What's his open from SB vs BB and maybe some adjustments he makes vs you? Quite often you can 3bet this preflop for value and get called by tons of worse hands.

      As played postflop, I'm not really in love with floating but based on his postflop tendencies it should be fine: he barrels broadways, especially K and Q and gives up on blanks with bluffs. If he continues bluffs on blanks and/or doesn't barrel good cards for you, I prefer taking the 2 overs and BD FD and bluff raise here since even IP it will be difficult to win the pot with next to no equity.

      As played, I think you can't value bet the river unless you know him to like calling. I wouldn't discount 2 pair or a set from his range and I don't think he check/folds that to consider bluffing. Also, he probably bets Jx himself... He could still have 6x and not bet it and just turn it into a bluffcatcher. I think checking back is fine, make note of anything strange you may see at showdown.
