      I did not have any stats on this guy, however he had been minraising my blinds and I had C-bet folded a couple of times while he was at the table. Could I play this different?

      When analysing afterwards I realised I was behind according to the range I can put him on. Maybe he'll try to take it with air on the flop(with regards to our history) with something like AT.

      call turn reevaluate river
      if het bets big again your almost always beat imo :)
      you have to be able to lay your good hands down as wel, I know it sucks but I've lost too much money against a set/2pair in these kind of situations

      Given the stack sizes, he can't call turn and fold river.

      I'd push as well, I think a set is so unlikely here (Although I don't play SH). IMO he's most likely on a K or the FD.

      i think pushing is the worst solution here . there arent many worst hands in his range to call you . even a wicker king might fold . i would call and reevaluate river

      I don't play SH but i would push flop since you are way ahead against his range or unless i know that he plays his trips minraise on the flop. Most people like to trap with trips and just cold call the flop. Less likely he might have K5 or K3. I would put him on K with weak kicker. On the turn it is a chance that he has KT so i would just call turn. But probably get broke on the river.

      I see your point about just calling. But I don't see how I can fold on the river if he pushes. Hero will be getting 3.3-to-1 to call villain's push on the river.

      So, best line would be call turn. check/call river?

      yes you cant fold . but you will invest the same amount of money as shoving and you will acomplish more things
      by raising you are folding all the hands from where you could squize some more value like 99-qq . and you will obviously fold all his air/bluff not giving him the chance to take a shot at the river

      Not sure if he is taking that line with Kx or set or maybe KT.
      I´d also call since he probably hasn´t flushdraw that often and see what he does on the river.

      Yeah, you guys are right, pushing is not a good idea. Thx for the explanation. :)

      Thx guys for your input. Yeah I can see that pushing is a bad option, although I didn't want to get run over at this table (like I had been when raised out after Cbetting) so I took a stand here with an avarage hand and really just wanted to take the pot down, however my table image changed to the better which was a good result.
