      $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      Hero (BTN): $25.24 (101 bb)
      SB: $149.48 (597.9 bb)
      BB: $57.59 (230.4 bb)
      UTG: $47.58 (190.3 bb)
      MP: $12.50 (50 bb)
      CO: $31.99 (128 bb)

      BB 24/16/8.9/1.2/38/291hands
      3b from BB 20.6(34)

      I very rarely try a big bluff like this, so im not sure if i played it well or not.

      Do you prefer 4bet bluffing pre, since his range is so wide? or his calling IP ok?
      I also have v high FT3b stats.

      Thought about just raising flop, but he has 88% cbet, so i planned to call flop/bet any turn if checked to.

      Seems very weak when he c/c turn, is it ok to assume his range is mostly Jx, FD's? Surely overpairs cbet, also JJ,TT. So i figured his range is weak.

      River pretty much bricks unless he plays 98 this way, so i shove to fold out pairs & A high draws.

      Can i rep much of a value range by playing this way? i figure i can rep JJ,TT,QQ maybe even JT.

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q:diamond: K:heart:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.62, SB folds, BB raises to $2.25, Hero calls $1.63

      Flop: ($4.60) 2:heart: T:diamond: J:heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $2.25, Hero calls $2.25

      Turn: ($9.10) 4:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $5.20, BB calls $5.20

      River: ($19.50) 7:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $15.54 and is all-in, BB calls $15.54

      Results: $50.58 pot ($2 rake)
      Final Board: 2:heart: T:diamond: J:heart: 4:diamond: 7:club:
      Hero showed Q:diamond: K:heart: and lost (-$25.24 net)
      BB showed A:heart: T:spade: and won $48.58 ($23.34 net)

      I think KQ plays well enough that you don´t have to turn it into bluff. I would prefer raising flop and shoving any turn, since you have there 8 outs to hit your straight+ 6 outs that likely give you best hand and if he has some kind of pair, you also have runner-runner flushes.
      So I would try to make him fold Tx and weaker hands rather than just float to then bet turn.
      River shove is fine, since you no showdown value. I would not fold there AT, but I think you make me fold 88 and weaker showdown value hands (+ most players would give up with Tx)

      best regards,
