      Taggish looking player on small sample

      On the turn I decided to turn my hand into a bluff by raising his second barrel and also shove river as I expected to make him fold this way a lot of his overpairs and other hands and basically for him to call me down with sets or better. -and maybe not so often with sets.

      Not to sure what to do on a :heart: river. I expect to make him fold anything than a flush in his range like sets, overpairs etc. I assume it's pure math depending on how many flushes I expect him to have vs all other hands?

      The reason why I made this play is because it would be pretty hard for me to call many river cards and so I might end up folding the best hand and also because as stated above I expect to make better hands fold.

      I really don´t like it.
      You have showdown value with your overpair+ if you are behing you likely have 6 outs to improve. And he can always that spot with his A high flushdraws, since your turn c/r looks kind of small.
      I´d personally would b/f turn and maybe then c/c river if you don´t see him having worse hands that would call river
