1. Can I call river? flip a coin.
2. Could I have played this hand better before the river? bet on the flop and turn to get some kind of read of what your opponent has. doesn't have to be big bets but a 1/4 pot on the flop would get rid of anything that wasn't a draw. a reraise would most likely be a jack not a/k draw. now you have information and you can move forward.
Because it’s low stakes you can put AJ in that range but how many combos are you putting him on. LAGGY players may show up with AJo but most NITS and TAGS ARE only showing up with suited. So there’s. So there’s one combo of KJs 2 combos of AJs 1 combo of Jacks. There are a 3 combos of Queens and 10’s that you may have to worry about. I’d say this is very player dependent but you can definitely make a call against LAGS but NITS or TAGS that don’t have many bluffs you should be laying this down. Without bluffs I’m there range your way behind and need to fold if you bet into on the river. If you can put AK in there range it’s a call on the river
