      villain is unknown but seems fishy for minraising pre.
      i think i played this ok but i'd like to double check. no reason to believe that he peeled me 2 streets with Kx unless it's like KsJs or something. i think it's more likely he has some Tx hand or busted FD by the river. i decided to check/call river since i believe he's more likely to bluff the rest of his stack than he is to call it with a weaker hand. should i just bet river myself for thin value vs Tx?

      Hey,

      I think both shoving and check/calling are perfectly good.

      By checking you let him bluff busted draws and by shoving you usually get value from all Tx, sometimes worse like 77-99. It's up to you to decide which is more likely to happen. You have the best hand too often and only Kx is like you said, Kx with spades.
