9 handed live 2/5 Holdem at borgata late
Been at table for about 1 hour and folded most hands
Villain hasn't played many hands and limped hands he has played. Not an aggressive table.

Villain limps utg with $750
Mp1 limps
Button limps
SB completes
Hero in the BB with K♦10♥ $475 and check
Flop K♠10♦4♠
SB Checks
I bet $20
Villain calls
MP1 Calls
BTN Folds
SB Folds
I put villain and MP1 on hands like Ax spades. All JQ's
Turn 10♣
I bet $35 into $85
Villain calls
MP1 Folds
I still think villain has same range here.
River A♣
Here I check thinking if I lead the only hand in villains range that will call is Ax ♠. So I may lose value from that hand but if villain has JQ here then I don't think he will fold to a check raise
I check river and villain bets $80
Here is where my question is.
It I think villain will call me %100 of the time with JQ if I shove and I think he will fold anything else but hands that beat me is it correct to shove?
What about flop, turn and river action?

    Pot $155 on R, I lead $75 looking to get value from the A . I believe that he will raise all QJ's and when he does shove. I think your play on all other streets was fine.

    As played you might as well c/r shove. You only can get value from QJ, so go for it.

    If u are getting called by qj ... Shove shove shove , the hands that beat you are so rarely there like aa kk even ace ten all reraise your underbet on the turn at least 80% of the time. Plus ace ten is played maybe 50% of the time utg, and aa & kk are raised like 80% of the time preflop and raised on the flop 50% of the time.
    So with all those estimations I think u are rarely rarely beat so yes shove shove shove

    Depends on how aggressive games are but if there is a reasonable chance of people betting turn when you check I like checking turn. You have draws drawing dead so betting and having someone fold a FD is not great. If you do this just call turn and c/r rivers. If we are going to bet don't love this sizing, prefer bigger.

    OTR I agree with betting like 2/3 pot and hoping QJ raises. If the game is super passive and people will not raise QJ I could see checking with plan to just check ship vs a bet. However see that as unlikely.
