      18/11 nit who pretty much plays hand face up, way more often AJ than KJ here though, but KJ is definitely a possibility. Never KK+ as he will 4bet. Possibly has sets but more likely to raise flop. I would put a distribution of like
      AJ 80% KJ 15% set 5%.

      It's not like I can check fold here on river of course right? I know bigger flop bet allows me to ship turn but I crush his range here so bad that I want to keep him in the pot.

      Shoving river is definitely good if you think he calls AJ a lot of the time.

      AJ (12 combos)
      KJs (3 combos)
      66 (2 combos? we discount them preflop cos they play poorly)

      Your alternative is to check/call to catch busted draws. I don't think we can check/fold a hand as strong as QQ.

      I think overall we have a shove here. I am not putting him on too many combos of KJo.
