Tough one with bottom set, especially since it's hard to think of a hand other than QJ he could be playing this way. Given that we rep a very strong range of hands here (even recreational players put you on AK all the time) and since he is really passive over a decent sample of hands I feel like we can argue herofold. I would probably make the cut at KK/AA as he then could be shoving 44 himself.

AF 0.33

I think this is a perfect bet/fold situation on the river. The bolded above is reason number 1. Villain is just going to call with AT/AK, the hands you beat, not move all-in.

Secondly, it might be helpful to think about your own range (it is still a fold if you don't). You can have KK/AA/QJ in your river betting range. This definitely isn't the strongest hand you can have yourself.
