      I think flop cbet is okay then i was pondering whether i should check and call river/ bet river since we either wa or wb and only card that willing to commit more than his underpairs is kq, in a big pot i would expect a split as best case scenario because he was rather passive so far, but barely seen him play.

      I decided on this line because its more likely he will call a bet as long as the board is low.

      What's your line ?

      If you keep my line what would you do on the river ?

      What if he donks half pot on the river with current K river ?

      What if he donks half pot on a blank river ?

      Preflop: Usually 3betting AQ in these positions. I'm wondering if that is a good play vs this nit though. It seems that despite opening fairly tight ranges, he seems passive (high WTSD, low AF).

      I guess that's fine still

      Postflop: Once you have top pair top kicker in 3bet pots, just bet bet all-in (on normal boards). If you don't feel comfortable doing it, then don't 3bet such hands for value in the first place

      Turn: I think you should have bet 1.10 on the Turn, to ensure that you have less than a pot size bet on the River.

      River: I agree with the check back unless you think he doesn't fold TT/JJ and has a ton of worse QX hands. Over here I just think he has KQ really often, and that he folds most worse hands on such a scary card.

      I would shove still if i am perceived to be bluffing a lot and i expect him to assume that my ranges are really wide. I suppose that is not the case so check is good.
