      Preflop: Is the open here too loose vs an unknown?

      Flop: C-bet vs some weaker PP's and random floats? I decided to c/c in this instance because I thought that it would be less likely that villain calls with weaker QX or PP's, random floats (maybe I give my opp's too much credit?) so decided to bluff induce instead ( I guess I am making a rather wild assumption vs an unknown?) / kind of go for pot control ( I wasn't quite sure which)

      Turn: Since I had chosen a bluff induce approach I thought it would be weird to now donk the turn, so decided to continue with this line. When he checks behind I think he has given up and won't bluff again on the river and would rather go to showdown.

      River: Doesn't really change much IMO unless he's decided to chk behind Q9+, 4x, QJ or hit 77's full on the river so I decided to make a blockbet/thin value bet since I didnt expect him to bluff the river but I think he will call weaker pairs some of the time since my hand strength is for the most part under repped.

      Hello muel294,

      Preflop: If you have looser opening range then you should also adjust your opening size on the SB, especially if you play SH.

      As played
      Postflop: Either make a realistic Bet on the river to maybe get called from Jx or just Check/Call the river, such a block-bet doesn't achieve much, rather missing value from Jx.

      Best Regards.

      I assume by this you mean raise a smaller amount, therefore it doesn't have to work as often in order to be profitable?

      By this I assume you mean at least 1/2 pot?

      Thanks
