      River: You have no value. Look at the starting positions. What KX hands does he play?

      AK, KQ, KJs

      He probably never calls with worse than KX. You now lose to KJ. Could he have K9 or KT? I think it's really unlikely.

      I don't expect him to bet the river with worse hands too. I expect him to check behind a hand like TT, and the backdoor flush could potentially improve him some small % of the time if he floats the Flop with hands like AsQs.

      So the decision should be clear, that we have no other option than to c/f.
