      I think his check back on the turn can only mean that he's got total air or that card gave him a real monster. Considering that, I don't think there's value in donking the river.

      The only hand I see you beating here is 5x, but I think it's more likely that he played a FH or a flush that way.

      I expect to get the same value from 5x by either c/c or betting myself.
      The problem is that if we bet and he shoves, we're pretty much often behind and we're put to a pretty tough decision.

      Therefore I prefer c/c the river, since I don't wanna play for stacks on the river and I don't believe I'll get any more value off betting than off c/c

      I would prefer leading out on that flop instead of c/c.
      This way you have chance to take down pot and weaker hands than Tx+ should fold.
      Betting river is fine, but since his line looks very strong, then I think you can fold to re-raise. He isn´t really doing that with 5x a lot of times. I´d expect him to bet out turn himself, so I´d put him rather on boat.
