      I raised with this hand preflop to try and isolate the Small Blind because he was very loose, i had position and the rest of the table was tight.

      On the flop I made a C-Bet which may of been a little to small now that i see it again.

      I barreled the turn with my added equity, thinking he could be also on a draw in which case he might find a fold seeing as a possible straight draw came in on the turn, also he could fold a 10 here?

      Then on the river I made a bluff because i thought there is a chance he was on a flushdraw after check calling 2 streets and checking river, or he could still be on a 10 and might fold that.

      Looking back at the hand I see his Post flop agression factor is 0.8, should this of changed any of my plays?

      Hello Vip3rNZ,

      Easy and simple rule to follow, never try to bluff a loose opponent! So Check behind the turn? :)

      Best Regards.
