      Hello Darkyd10,

      Bet the flop bigger! Bet the turn bigger! You are missing TONS of value here. But as played doubt that he is block-betting there with Ax, just hope that he has something like A5 which is blocking.

      For the given sample size AF is irrelevant and not correct. ;) He isn't really bluffing there but rather meanwhile had a lot of FDs in his range and maybe even SDs which completed on the turn. Any other hand would have raised earlier or played aggressively.

      We need ~25% equity on the river, we get:

      Board: 9:club: A:heart: J:club:  Q:spade:  5:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    77.78%  77.78%   0.00% { A5s, KcQc, KcJc, QcJc, KcTc, QcTc, JcTc, Kc9c, Qc9c, Jc9c, Tc9c, Kc8c, Qc8c, Jc8c, Tc8c, 9c8c, Kc7c, Qc7c, Jc7c, Tc7c, 9c7c, 8c7c, Kc6c, Qc6c, Jc6c, Tc6c, 9c6c, 8c6c, 7c6c, Kc5c, Qc5c, Jc5c, Tc5c, 7c5c, 6c5c, Kc4c, Qc4c, Jc4c, 5c4c, Kc3c, Qc3c, Kc2c, Qc2c, A5o }
      UTG+1  22.22%  22.22%   0.00% { AcJh }

      doubt that he is bluffing and nor I don't see him that often to bet this way with just Ax. If we assume he has a wider range then sure, calling shouldn't be a mistake.

      Best Regards.
