      Villain has a fairly wide UTG open range, so i coldcalled preflop, because in position on favourable boards I can make some moves postflop to make it profitable.
      On the flop I decided to bluffraise him, because he often secondbarrels, which could ruin our chances for floating.
      Due to his wider UTG range he can hit this flop some of the time, and up till now he's not very keen to fold to flop raises, but I can represent many strong combos on this board, and he will have a thought time to continue without a 2pair+ hand, or strong combodraw. Even overpairs have hard time to go broke here, as I dont bluffraise very frequently.
      What do you think?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Yeah, I like your play here. Most likely I would have played the same way. Nice hand! Tough to continue anyways vs his 3bet. :(

      And of course also depends on your image and dynamics here, if you had an aggressive image then maybe he could as well just fight back? But more often I would expect him to do it with stronger hand as strong overpairs.

      Best Regards.
