      I think I would push that turn, putting him on a flushdraw. If you do check the turn I think checking behind on the river as you did is good (because he won't call with anything other than the best hand).

      SBs play looks pretty weird though, perhaps typical fishy play (hey I might hit my 7 on the river if I call this)

      After your c-bet you are pot commited anyway, so I would just push the flop. You want to give him bad odds to call a draw. In these situations I might consider surrendering the hand if the flop shows an A on a drawy board or there are 2 broadway overcards, otherwise I push.

      Eg. If you push the flop you give villian 1.6:1 pot odds, so he can only profitably call you with a K (obviously), a set, AA, or a monster draw (12 outer)

      As played, push the turn, K holdings should c/r you on the flop, it is just poor play to float a shortstack.

      Looks like you have a few SSSrs at this table, I would leave without position on them.
