Villan is 26/23 with a resteal of 25% in the SB over 238 hands. I think his range will be polarized but value heavy, so given bet sizing I fold. On the one hand he could have AK, TT, JJ, QQ and QJ but he can also have missed flush draws, I dont think he has to bet a missed straight draw with a king unless he has KT and maybe KJ and is turning his hand into a bluff, maybe K8s-.

If villain 3-bets that wide (check for # of spots on the 25%, could just be a couple which may make it seem more than it actually may converge to), I like both flatting > 4-betting as an option. Depends on how confident you are in your postflop decision making against a wider range and his possible postflop aggression.

Generally I like how you played it and I think folding river is fine as even on a wider range he can be producing and shoving a lot of different better hand types OTR (98s, JTs, QTs, TT+, AK, some BDFs).
