      It's fine, just make a note on whatever he did and move on. KQ is clearly ahead of the range of hands such a player might take this line with, valuebetting the river is mandatory. I'd even go up to $1.7.

      Just remember, even if he shows you a better hand 49% of the times he calls you, it's still a profitable valuebet. If you're never valuebetting into a better hand, you're not valuebetting thin enough, that should not be your goal.

      Hope it helps.
