      Villain is unknown.

      I figured he had some weak overpair or medium pair (maybe even AQ-AK), so I bluffed. On the turn I picked up some equity and decided to continue. His lead on the river looked like a block bet, so I decided to continue with my bluff and shipped, because I expect to effectively represent an overpair or even a set.

      Hello Dawidas888,

      Rather just give it up on turn and that's it. Take the free card and be happy if you hit. He ain't gonna fold anyways a lot of his holdings which Called on flop. And there is not much to represent for yourself either.

      Only few hands you can represent on river and without knowing the opponent I wouldn't shove.

      Best regards.
