      Hard to say, totally depends on how he views the K turn and without any reads it's mostly guesswork. I'd call the river the first time around and be sure to make a note on his play for all similar spots in the future, tho usually people overbetting have the nuts more often than not.

      You want to get in his head, so you need to figure out why he played his hand the way he did. Did he check Kx on that turn to get more value out of you on the river, figuring his bet on the turn would look strong? Did he not try to bluff that K turn because it's a bad card for him, but then changed his mind when you checked back? Was he able to valuebet a good Q on the river putting you on exactly the type of hand you have, indicating he's better than most of the nl10 regs? In any case, why the overbet?

      Hope it helps.
