      I delayed my cbet here, I don´t really remember why, but I think it was because he was kinda loose/agro and therefore I wanted to avoid check/raise which I wouldn´t welcome at all. Is this alternative line doable ?

      What if I missed the river ?

      possibilites:
      -river is another T,J or Q - should I bluff it also ?
      -river is blank - should I give up ?

      Hello acceleration123,

      Why not Check behind on turn? What worse will Call you anyways there and often times might our A high be good enough to Check it through.

      And rather CBet the flop than pick a bluff line on turn. And hard to say against unknown if you should bluff or not, while he could easily Call you anyways down with any pair while it doesn't even matter for him if there is a J or Q or K or whatsoever. Likely just Check it behind if he Calls.

      If you want to add bluff-plays into your play you have to know your opponent. :) Since how you can imagine him making the fold if you even don't know him?

      Best regards.
