River too thin?

1 3 game. Im in mid pos KcQs. I raise to 15. Button calls, bb calls. Button is a big fish. Bb i dont know but typical young kid w headphones. Flop comes AcKc9d. Chked around. Turn is 2h. Chk chk and button bets 20 into 45. Bb calls . i call. I put button on like a weak king. I believe hed bet an ace on the flop. And the bb ona draw? River is 9h. Chk . i bet 45. I think i have the best hand and weaker will call.weaker king? Button folds and bb calls. He has Acjd. Maybe he thought i had ak? Chking this flop and turn? That is weird to me. Thoughts? Too thin on the river? I was betting for value.

    Is the board runout really Ac Kc 9d 2h 9h ? Because if thats the case you are chopping vs a weaker king. 3 handed on the river thats way way too think for value especially when you cant beat anything when called. Even if the river was an 8 I still think its too thin against two other opponents.

    Yeah but i thought the way played a weaker king would call (yeah i think the river was an 8) and would any ace from eother opponent play this way? My thought anyways. Maybe so .. In that case it would be too thin.

    Once checked to me on the turn, I like a small bet for value from worse Kings and Flush Draws. Neither opponent is going to show up with an ace very often.

    As played, I don't like the river bet at all. Seems too optimistic to get him off a king after you never put in any aggressive actions postflop. You look like exactly what you have. Check/call hoping he bluffs a FD. At worst you're chopping.

    Im not trying to get him off a k. Im trying to get a worse k to call. I misspoke. Rivee was an 8. I dont think he betsa fd on the turn. If he was going to he wouldve on the flop.

    Okay, then the bet on the river is fine, though I still like a bet on the turn prior to that.

    Betting the turn here 100% with the action given. He's not supposed to have an ace there by that point.

    Bet the turn after being checked to twice, then check river after being called. As played, I would check to the button again, planning to bluff-catch. When the blind then called, you can fold.
