    If you bet, what worse hands do you expect to look you up? pocket 6s - 8s? There's no real draws on the flop. Would he hero call with AK or AQ? What is your image? have you been 3-betting your button often?

    I would expect you often have the best hand and you often can't get called by worse. The only reason I can see to bet the river - and it's a reason I've never heard mentioned in Bart's material - is so you don't have to show your opponent and your table that ATo is part of your button 3bet range.

    I do think given my image as a "im here to have fun playing poker" guy he is probably calling with 77-88, 66 is questionable but it might be in his range as well.
    My hand looks a lot like AK or some big overpair im pot controling with (i would never do that, but he doesnt know that) , at the moment i believed i have the best hand and he is gonna look me up light with any 77-88. Since in my eyes his range consists of 77-88-JJ or maybe AQs-AKo i think when called im ahead 50% of the times.
