      I decided to bluff on the river pretending Ax or a flush. I thought he probably had 9x or JJ- and I have no showdown value. Is that doable (apart from that I should bet bigger then)?

      Hello jockel80,

      I guess if I am betting the river then I would even do it a bit bigger like $0,40 at least, such a small bet will just make him Call anyways while he has pretty high WTS. I am not saying like this is a very bad spot to bluff, it's doable but rather do the sizing a bit bigger to represent as well what you wanting to represent.

      Best regards.
