[NL2-NL10] NL4 SH K4 2 pair vs river raise

      Here I'm wondering about the river play because I think flop and turn are standard but please feel free to comment on that. When he pops me on the river it looks suspiciously like a value raise due to the size, and I opt for a call. I'm wondering if my hand is strong enough for a 3 bet/fold to push line? Am I getting called by worse hands enough if I do that? The only hand that makes sense for him to have that beats me is a slow played low set or straight, but he probably raises the turn with those holdings due to flush possibilities.

      Preflop we could think about raising a suited king.
      When he limps he probably has a weak hand and he either folds preflop or to a cbet.

      On the flop I would pot it.

      Turn is good.

      As played, I would bet more on the river - like 7-8bb.
      When he minraises I would rather go for a 3bet here against some worse two pairs but if he shoves I would fold.
