      Ok so some notes.

      -This guys stats were very aggro although small sample size (50 hands ish)
      -However he appeared to be a relatively decent player, who applied a little bit of thinking.
      -I believe he woulda bet less if it was a value line, to try and induce action.
      -He tanked river which indicates he actually had a decision, again hands like AK i believe will either bet less or check, and this is the only hand that i believe would have to decide to bet. AA or KK would bet before the timebank kicked in imo.

      So what i want to know is if you think this is a nh and if you think my arguments are valid. Thanks in advance

      turning 77 into bluffcather is not the best idea. There has a lot of variance if player is shoving river KQ+ or maybe even Tx or JJ+ to get you to fold Kx, which likely you should have.
      I think hes range is quite strong if he raised pf and is not bluffing enough times on the flop/turn or river that you can call down profitable.
      He can also tank river with AA/AK thinking if he should c/c or shove himsel, since it is potsize bet left river shove is standard at that point

      Yes but because our line looks relatively weak, doesnt that mean he could do this with all kind of trash as well?

      Or could he be chasing a draw? Bets flop with nut flush draw, decides he cant check call turn so has to bet, then misses river so goes for an all out bluff?

      Oh and i also dont think he will shove KQ, but maybe AK. Then again maybe im giving to much credit and thinking for NL25? :P
