      I am bluff-catching first two streets against a pretty wide range since he misses the flop a lot but will c-bet it most likely. On River I turn this into a value hand obviously, but I want to make it look bluffy and expect calls from maybe 77-JJ which would probably check behind. I will get value from any Ace pretty much.

      It's not doubt about me getting value or not, the only question is, was I right to bluff-catch two streets and was this a good way to maximize my value on the river? Donk-betting overbet when the flushdraw misses, looks very bluffy.

      Hello rdmnick,

      Flop & turn of course are fine but what we have to ask from ourselves is what's the best move on the river? I'd for example pick a really small donk-bet there to induce him raise with Ax hands which he will do. Right now vs your over-bet he wont do and rarely hero-call with a lot worse either. I'd make ~$3-4 to indue him raise us maybe even with bluffs/missed draws.

      Best Regards.
