      I know the old sayin' around here "Dont ever bluff the fish" but mommmy :( . I was very confident that he was going to have a weak sd hand like 6x, 7x, 88 99 Jx with low kicker (flop betting size) and I as like the biggest WTF of the weekend when I saw his hand.

      I still think my range assessment is correct a majority of the time and hence I think I have the potential to make the fish fold like all of it (I believe they fold things on the obvious draw completing).

      overbet is nice but imo unnecessary. If you want him to fold 7x then you can also bet 22$ and likely he would not fold Jx whatever you bet.
      I would likely checked back turn and hope to catch Q, K or A. Also clubs are quite good bluffing cards on the river

      best regards,
