      I had to bet more on the turn to like $10-$11 right ? I putted him on either Jx, or Tx or a spadedraw

      As played, vBet river or shove or c/f ?

      If I bet $11 on the Turn, would you go broke on the K Rivercard??

      Bet bigger on the flop, bet bigger on the turn.

      As for the river he looks bad enough for a shove to be profitable since he didn't raise you along the way making his overall range weaker unless he's a slowplay addict. But given how small you bet on earlier streets it's probably too scary to get calls from Jx on that river, so i'd rather bet smaller to ensure value and likely fold to a shove since he wont do it lightly and we have room to fold. Had we bet bigger we'd be forced to bet/call, making shoving the better option.

      Hope it helps.
