      villain unknown, how often is bluffing on turn profitable? Since the turn bluff didnt work, how often should i bet again on river in this case/ or in case if a brick came?

      Hello moovet,

      Preflop: Calling here is totally fine but sometimes I would also 3bet here, depending on the opponent.

      As played
      Flop: I'd prefer to just Bet out myself since Check/Call doesn't make sense, we ain't gettin any information.

      As played
      Turn: Obvious I don't really like the line since you are against unknown and why you try such bluffs against unknown? You will never be sure if he fold here the Ace or not, likely not then just Check/Fold.
      River: Same for the river, of course it's a good card to represent the flush but still if I don't know the opponent against we playing I wouldn't even consider taking such variance lines, if he is very loose he may be able to even Call with Ace here, whoever knows what the guy is thinking so to avoid the variance I'd just give it up on turn.

      Best regards.
