      Being a very tight player myself, I could c/f that flop.

      But your opponent played pretty terrible, with this min-raises, he tried to disguise a monster and failed to extract value out of you, he would not have succeeded anyway as I'm sure your hand was too weak to call any larger bets.

      His potsize bet on de river is often the 4th king or a better pair. I would say this is a bit read dependant. If you've seen this player bluff before this is definitely a snap call cause he might be doing this with Ace high. Against a more solid player I think the river is a safe fold.

      Overall I think you played the hand well, you didn't overplay your hand which is the most important thing. 9x is not the nuts here.

      I think it's fine, the river call is close either way and you can't really make a mistake without a better read on that guy. Him having the last Kx is always unlikely, which means he'll be bluffing here a decent amount of the time unless he's really passive.

      Hope it helps.
