      How is this?

      River bet was kinda aimed at a top/mid pair, and if he shoves I fold. I didn't really want to bet more, or check and face a bet...

      looks fine. :f_biggrin:

      that said, it is pretty clear that you don't like that river card so a good player is going to turn some made hands into a bluff there.
      but this broken stacked guy doesn't seem like a good player so nothing to worry about :f_biggrin:

      Against a good player, I guess it's fine to do the same thing and then face that difficult decision when/if he does raise?

      (which at these limits I'm assuming is going to be mostly stacked towards him having the nuts)

      i would most likely just check/fold it.

      a good player will not call your river bet with pure Tx and shouldn't have a lot of Qx (as in, most Qx are random gs like QJ/Q9, and he can't have something like Q J because the Q just arrived).
      it's more towards his river range having too many better hands, like flush/J9/QT.

      his Tx (like K T, AT) should know that they are rarely good vs your river bet and this is a great card to bluffraise on because you are not betting your flushes this way.
      that said, even if you know that he knows that you can't do much about it because his river raising range has enough of value hands. :f_biggrin:

      in any case, when we think about it KK is not really near the top of our barreling range so i wouldn't feel too bad about it. :f_biggrin:
