      Opponent is 38/9 but too little hands on him for more info.
      I bet the turn for free showdown and value vs Overcards, 45 A5 A4 56 QJ hearts 44 55 66 and random trash.
      River gives him an excellent opportunity for a very cheap bluff. He gets 2.3:1 on his bluff Meaning I need to fold almost only 25% of the time to make it instantly profitable. I don't know if a 38/9 guy thinks about this. His Range is also very balanced vs my dbl barreling range:
      He has some busted overcards and draws + heart draws got there + Overcards like KJ and QJ got there. So its a good spot to bluff for him even with almost no foldequity to the stacksizes, when I get that good odds.

      Did I play the hand well?

      Since you´re likely going to b/f turn I don´t really like that much turn barrel. I would check back turn and call a lot of rivers, but it also depends how much he bets and if it feels if he has me beat, but likely I´d call half potsize bet like Qd river card
      River you have to fold. very often they turn their made hands into bluff
