      Villain: 21/19/4.1 during 823 hands, good solid reg, but capable of doing anything, even some crazy bluffs. I've seen him representing a flush with complete air, when I was preflop aggressor and fired 2 barrels with top set. Raise flop cbet 25.

      BB: $14.76
      UTG: $21.69
      Hero (MP): $12.56
      CO: $18.21
      BTN: $10.78
      SB: $10.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is MP with J:diamond: K:spade:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.30, CO calls $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.05) J:club: 5:club: J:spade: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, CO calls $0.60, BTN raises to $1.90, Hero calls $1.30, CO folds

      Turn: ($5.45) K:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $3, Hero calls $3

      River: ($11.45) 4:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.36 all in, BTN folds

      Even before he raised me on the flop I was completely expecting this move from him, and suspected for him to have polarised range here. Either he has AJ or 55, or complete air again. So I guess we could decline shoving as bad option here? The same with turn. And on the river I decide to shove because I don't believe he would continue his bluff here, and with any hands that has at least some showdown value, he will check behind as well.

      c/rai on the turn, if he has there Jx/flush, he would b/c or if he has bluff you can´t be sure he is shoving river, as played you have to check river, since he won´t really call your shove with trips so you really hope he is bluffing on scary river card

      But if we c/r the turn he folds everything (especially bluff), and we could expect value only if he has 55. Or am I missing some point?
      Good point about checking river, I shoulda definitely done that.

      well I´m not really sure he is bluffing 3-way that often, and he would b/c turn with flushes and trips and 55. if he just has air I´m not sure he would shove river if you b/c flop and c/c turn

      Well yeah, that's pretty tricky. He is fully capable of bluffing like this, but you never know..
