      Note (earlier in the session): "-02/13 nl50, vs me, BBsb cold 4bet/call shove AQo"

      I definitely should have made it a liitle bigger turn so I can ship river "better", but can I play this hand differentely? I considered c/c river but I don't think bluffs from missed draws will compensate the Kx that will call me, or even worse.

      You can make it bigger on the flop too since K9xds hits a cold calling range quite well.. all middle broadways and al suited connectors of the suit have something. The line is fine but sizing makes it a lot harder to get value imo.

      I don't like check/call river because people usually double float with showdown value and check back river here...
