      MP: $8.40 - VPIP: 35, PFR: 15, 3B: 0, AF: 6.5, Hands: 46
      CO: $1.90 - VPIP: 53, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: Infinity, Hands: 17
      Hero (BTN): $10.40
      SB: $9.46 - VPIP: 28, PFR: 12, 3B: 8, AF: Infinity, Hands: 50
      BB: $13.77 - VPIP: 37, PFR: 17, 3B: 0, AF: 1.5, Hands: 35
      UTG: $4.07 - VPIP: 56, PFR: 17, 3B: 33, AF: 2.5, Hands: 18

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with J:heart: Q:heart:
      UTG raises to $0.20, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.20, 1 fold, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.65) 8:spade: 2:club: K:heart: (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.60, BB folds, UTG calls $0.50

      Turn: ($1.85) A:diamond: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: ($1.85) K:diamond: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $1.40, UTG folds

      Pre flop - called the min raise in position figuring at least one of the blinds would come along
      Flop - Initial raiser puts a min bet of $0.10 into $0.65. At this point thought they probably had a medium pocket pair or slow playing a set, so i put in raise to try and represent a king and take the pot down. They just flat called which i didn't alter my thinking about their hand.
      Turn - After they checked i was in 2 minds whether to continue the bluff or check behind and take the free card after picking up the straight draw. Figured that if i hit a queen or jack that i probably would be good too unless they bet the river strong.
      River - After they check again i discounted them having a strong hand so bet again with the second king on the board.

      Good position to bluff or totally miss played the hand and got lucky?

      Hello parry,

      Fold it preflop just for the given reason that he doesn't have a full stack.
      I'd rather bet the turn with the Ace and also we have GS, which gives us pretty decent equity. Otherwise I rarely try to bluff against fishes! Ain't just worth.

      Best regards.
