      Dealt to Hero T:spade: 7:spade:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.75, BTN calls $0.75, fold, fold

      Hero bets $1.40, BTN calls $1.40

      RIVER ($10.65) 2:heart: T:diamond: 5:club: Q:club: Q:heart:

      Hero checks, BTN bets $4, Hero calls $4

      43/24 aggressive fish, not enough hands for other reasonable stats.

      I thought that the pairing Q is one of the best hands to bluff catch against him and so I check. The only suspicious thing is the sizing of his bet because he is offering me very good odds and makes me inclined that he very much wants me to call. Should I refrain from bluff catching in spots like this until I have some read on the opponent's bet sizing ?

      He would not better Tx hand on the turn, so I think I would just c/c turn instead of betting there for value. This way you give him option betting his floats and can profitable c/c twice to let him bluff his air.

      River c/c is fine. You have some showdown value and he would veyr likely bluff his Ax hands on the river

      best regards,
