      Don't have many hands on him but he seems like a passive fish/calling station to me. Should I value bet river here?

      I'm probably not betting River, what worse hands do u expect to get called by?
      In order to justify betting the river here, you need him to call with many worse hands besides KJ. KT K9 maybe K8? Then I could find an argument for betting.

      I guess having the Ace of heart is great cos it's less likely he has a flush.
