      preflop is good. :f_biggrin:

      on the flop his near-minraise is kinda scary because from his vpip/pfr he seems so passive.
      i'd expect to see Kx or better a lot of the time, he is not valueraising any worse hands so the only hope is that he can play a flushdraw this way to get a free card on the turn.

      so as it happened his check behind on the turn after near-minraising the flop looks like nuts (66/K6/K8) or a flushdraw. if he had non-fullhouse Kx he most likely wouldn't want to give a free card to clubs.

      against nuts you are going to get the money in any case, so the question is how to get the most value from his draws.
      when you bet yourself his flushdraws that didn't have the A will just snapfold. so i'd go with a check/raise, that way you give him an opportunity to bluff with missed draws.

      [edit: when writing the above i forgot that hero has the A. so he pretty much never has a made hand that will call your river bet.]
