      Hero wins 87.72 BB

      460 hands, VPiP 25, PFR 18, 3b 11. FCB 63.

      I assume if he called flop he mostly has Kx because of his high FCB. I give up on turn with equity.

      Is my river push ok? He shows weakness so I suppose he has no nuts, and I push and expect him to call with Kx, because my line looks like bluff.

      Grrr! You posted results! :evil:

      Pre and flop are both fine. Your hand can be turned into a bluff on a few favourable runouts and has folding equity on flop already.

      Turn is indeed not too good but if he defends a hand such as 77 on flop, you can consider barreling. What you did up until turn is +EV so if you are unsure of the profitablity of a barrel there, checking is fine, will make money alongside pre and flop.

      River is tough.. I expect him to bet most Kx himself so I would actually be more inclined to go for a very small sizing like 2.5-3.5bb instead of 4x pot because I just don't see what he could call with.

      If you think he is a calling station I would be inclined to bet bigger but I would never think he calls Kx that plays board kicker to call 4x pot. I think you got lucky that he called but you didn't have any read that he could do that, not even a high WTSD stat.
