      Play was based on the opponent (who would c-bet this flop 100%) and board texture.

      Figured villian will have a hard time calling me unless he has a strong over-pair or a 6 himself. With pretty much his whole ORL position range still possible I figured that its worth the play (pretty much only bluff raise I made all session so not a common move opponents may be spotting).

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K:spade: , T:spade:
      5 folds, MP3 raises to $0.07, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.06, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.16) 6:heart: , 6:club: , 5:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $0.16, Hero raises to $0.45, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.48

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, the problem is that you are against a pretty much maniac guy. :P Would he even fold to your Check/Raise? Might even be some kind of station-like guy who ain't gonna fold. For that given reason I might even just give it up. Don't try to overplay maniacs. :D

      But it's of course very likely that his range didn't hit that kind of flop.

      Best regards.
