      NH. He's an unknown he likely isn't folding a top pair on the turn ever, so he still has a lot more Ax hands that you beat than he has Ax hands that beat you on the river. Since he will very likely not be able to fold any of these, it's a clear valuebet.

      Just remember, if you're never valuebetting into a better hand, you're not valuebetting thin enough.

      Hope it helps.
