      I would say i'd have to fold, maybe thats a bit tight but he has check/called the flop and turn so he obviously has something he likes. Also the river card isn't really anything to bluff on. Considering the stack sizes he could have easily called your pre-flop with pocket 44's or JJ's and without seeing him donk betting the river with a bluff then i think its a fold!!

      Hi,


      Given that this guys seems to be playing all his value hands like that and he's never 3betting preflop, that means he could have QQ+ there as well as JJ, maybe Jx if he thinks he's ahead with his good kicker, and maybe a busted diamond draw if he played it passively.

      Frankly it's a horrible spot to be in, folding an overpair seems really weak but we don't even know if he ever bluffs busted draws (if he even plays them passively) or if he would do the same with Jx. This looks so much like a value line with a better hand from that guy that i hate calling, so i'd fold and hate my life. I'm calling with KK+ tho, and you should call QQ if you have any reason to believe he's bluffing or valuebetting Jx.


      Hope it helps.
