      He has quite a few Kx in his range, not many draws that busted. You need him to bluff or value bet worse which is not that likely.

      You do get decent odds, so I wouldn't say a call is definitely wrong, and I don't think a fold is definitely right.

      If you think he bets A3, A5, 65 (suited or offsuit, the more the better) or maybe turns A2, A4 into a bluff then you can probably call since many Kx bet turns so you can discount some for the river.
