      Villain is 20/15 over 42 hands.

      What is the best line to take here? I figured check/call would be the best on the flop and turn because it would allow him to bet with a wider range.

      On the river I basically didn't think twice and just thought "well I have a good hand let
      s go with it". Looking back at it, I think I would have preferred to either check/call again or to bet/fold.

      I think whenever he raises here, we're pretty much never in good shape unless he decided to raise AA or KJ here or something, which I highly doubt. So at least I'm pretty sure I should have folded the river to his raise.

      But yeah, what is the best line here, being out of position and all?

      Preflop is fine.

      I like check/calling both flop and turn.

      As played, I would rather check/call the river as well as I don't think he is going to check back any Kx here.
      When he shoves I believe we have to fold here as I am not sure that the guy is going to shove here KJ for example.
