      Not sure if I´ve played correctly there.

      First of all the cbet on the flop - lot of SC which I think are big part of his PF calling range could hit this board rather well.

      And on the river I am not sure again - thsi card could be a scare card for him but it completes many draws as well, but could possibly get him out of a Tx hands.

      Hello acceleration123,

      If you want to look it like a bluff then you definitely have to bet it bigger on river to give him worse odds. Plus as well it depends against what kind of opponent we are against. I would like never think that he is capable of folding his pair there ever to your bet. He likely just had some kind of missed draw which we would win just by Checking as well.

      Best regards.

      Why not ?

      Couldn´t he bluff with his busted draw if I checked the river and therefore my bet could be considered as a block/bluff bet ?

      Those players on NL5 are just too loose with Calling with any kind of pairs that's the problem. But definitely against reasonable player your line is fine, although keep in mind that better do it bigger bet and not give him great odds for a Call.

      Both ways, either you turn your hand into bluff or he is doing (depends on opponent, some may as well just check behind while they don't hit). And still if you want to bluff there then do it bigger. :f_biggrin:
