      Is this hand played okay? I considered barreling river but I'm not sure I can make Kx fold, probably not. And if not better not to barrel since he has a lot of Kx type hands. Sure he still has some Jx, but he also has flushes so...

      I'm thinking you should not bet twice here.. either once or 3 times and the reason is the 9 is not a scare card, it's actually the opposite: a good card that improves his range a lot: KT, JT, QJ, etc.

      I am usually thinking here of check/raising turn. Why? Because we don't mind a check back from him and vs a floater we have enough equity + folding equity to do so. He is not a HUGE floater but the point is he is going to have a hard time with his Kx bets when you show you'll play for stacks.

      On this river the flush completing is actually OK imo, because now you can represent flushes as well. Sure, he has some in his range too but not a big difference overall, however it should scare his Kx more because it's weaker compared to other possible made hands in your range.
