      Guy is extremely bad player at HU (though +$6k at NL100 SH), quite passive, loose half tilty already. He bets when he has something but doesn't believe that I ever hold anything (he folds very easily).

      I didn't think he could make such move as we see (c/r river). That river card gave me the chance to bet little so I could value from maybe ace high (he had called me down with ace high before) because he might think I am trying to steal the pot thanks to that river.

      Do I ever find a call here?

      I think it's ok to valuebet river against megafish how calls down very light, like any pair.

      Maybe you can valuebet against him to if he is tilty, but then bet/fold ofc.. The way he played this hand could be T9, A9 or 9x or pure bluff. But if he has just A high, I think he would just call you here and not bluff very often.

      Against most players checkbehind river is the best, but I also bet/fold against fishes..

      it depens on history with this player, but I don't think he'l call with alot of (worse) hands on this river. The board looks dangerous, his call on the flop might indicate he hit something on that flop (?) so his made hand will look alot weaker on river (providing it hasn't improved).

      So checking behind on this board looks a bit preferable.

      As played: if he's really such a passive player I can find a fold on river. His bet looks awfully valuebet-ish.

      Edit - nm, clearly its just a HU thing (position, BB being OOP vs SB is just bizzare to not-HU player)
