      Hello. My question here is how to play turn. I decided to turn my hand into a bluff when ace came, because if I check/call I will have no idea what to do on river and check/fold seems too weak, since I would barrel as a bluff my entire range in case I didn't hit flop.

      Also, I've just noticed BB's 25bb stack, so should I raise less preflop? Thank you

      I don't exect BB to be playing that many hands so you can raise less but I think on your limits 3bb is fine

      If you think he is bluffing often you can check/call the Turn & check/fold the River.

      Now you turn your hand into a bluff so you have to know if there are any better hands calling the Flop that will possibly fold this Turn. Don't think there are many of these hands
