      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.102 by

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 8:heart: , 8:club:
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0,08, SB folds, BB calls $0,06.

      Flop: ($0,17) 9:club: , 5:club: , 4:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0,46, Hero raises to $2,80 (All-In), BB calls $1,35 (All-In).

      Turn: ($4,78) K:spade:
      River: ($4,78) 4:heart: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $4,78

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two-pair, eights and fours (8h 8c)
      BB shows two-pair, nines and fours (9s 7s)

      Hero wins with two-pair, eights and fours (8h 8c)
      BB wins with two-pair, nines and fours (9s 7s)

      Is this kind of semibluff too aggressive with no info on your opponent?

      main problem is...
      you're already facing an overbet (against the preflop raiser!), which usually indicates to a very strong hand unless you know better. your fold equity should be close to zero :f_frown:

      while you have invested only the preflop raise and can't even be sure if your flush is clean, just let go

      Hello Elertar,

      As you see he is overbetting the flop which is towards to rather stronger hand than just pure bluff. Unless we know that he is spewing away money we can't continue here. Rather fold the hand.

      Best regards.
