      River's a fold imo.

      You don't get shown Kx there, Ax is the vast majority of his range. Even if he did show you Kx sometimes, keep in mind you just split against it.

      Against short stacks that open wide I would consider a thin value check/raise to stack off there. KT might be too thin but KQ is definitely good enough, KJ is a bit more opponent dependent. With aggressive image you can definitely check/raise KTcc as well, expecting him to shove flushdraws, all Kx and hands like 9x-QQ as well because they usually expect you to either have air, a flushdraw or a set. Since set is so unlikely (KK 3bet pre, 99 3bet pre sometimes as well, only 44 left) they just ship it in your face. Ofc, they don't fold KJ either so you do get owned by that sometimes, however you make up from his spews.
