      We´ve been playing pretty long time at the same table by this hand, stats of the opponent 30/20/18/50/0/105 Vpip/pfr/wtsd/steal BU/Fto3bIP/hands. I've been playing ~20/18 3betting like 12%, made like 3 resteals against his button. I had barreled him earlier as well and applied it here as well because it seemed like he were capable to fold even pretty good hands on the later streets. I were going to ship it on the river no matter what card hits and I think I gain enough foldequity.
      What do you think about this bluff? Basically as he didn´t raise the flop and if he didn´t raise the turn neither, I thought I could exclude the nut-like hands pretty comfortably and I do believe he will give up his bluff-catchers by the river.

      Hello spadek,

      Seems to be fine, usually I'd go for a CB then I'd also consider 2nd barreling and neither the sizing ain't like very bad. I might make a bit bigger like $6,50.

      Best Regards.

      Not the greatest one but I would most likely still do it while the guy has pretty wide calling range.
