      Value bet the river. There aren't really many busted draw's so bluff induction just gives villian a chance to check his medium strength stuff behind. Most flush draw's would have raised on the turn + your blocking Kx combinations. He can still call with the last king, underpairs, weird two pair etc. Probably bet a tiny bit more on the flop and turn to build a pot.

      I agree mostly. His range on the river is probably Kx, some pocket pair with one club, occasionally a slowplayed flush. Two pairs aren't so likely given the board, and they probably would have felt the need to raise earlier. So unless you can't bet/fold for value because you have strong reasons to believe he might just jam a worse hand and you don't feel like you can profitably call it off, i still think it's worth bet/folding instead of check/calling.


      Hope it helps.
