      SB checks, Hero bets €13.00, fold

      Since he 3B quite often from blinds I went for a 4B bluff. I am experiencing new sizing from BU (hence the 11 $ 4B).
      The question here is how to play post flop?

      I think he could go for C/R or C/C with over pairs on flop so I Checked bhd.
      Once he check again on Turn I think he dosnt have overpair but Ax and I think I can take the pot down.
      How would you play it?

      I think that the bet sizing is the optimum one, I also make it to 22-23bb vs a 10bb 3 bet.

      He can also have JJ/TT here imo and if we take a stab on the Q I think we have to shove river as well (ofc if we think he can fold those hands) if we can assume that he is not going to have AQ here too often.

      He folded 1/1 so no real stats.

      He is not meant to call :s_confused:

      Joking aside I think it is perfectly fine and I am still IP.

      I´d likely go 12$, since I think he would call 11$ a little too often also better hands that you might not get away postflop
      If you check back your hand looks a lot like AK that would give up, so I think I´d rather still c-bet to 9-10$ to build up 2-barrel and then decide if I want to shove river or not.
      I think generally people are not going to call you down if you show that much aggression and your image is not terrible
      As played. betting turn is fine, he would fold AJ, AT and hands that has some equity against your range
