      Hello Farmarchist,

      Turning hand into bluff-catcher in those spots is still fine but it's very complicated to play without even knowing much of the guys intention and how often he is willing to bluff this way.

      We have to decide on the turn anyways how we ending up our hand, we either Call him down the turn & river or we just Check/Fold the turn right there. It of course made him less likely to have the Jx cause another J came but he though bets decent amount there which means that we should be planning to call the river also off when he bets strong.

      Those situations ain't really dependent just from stats but rather also what dynamics we had, what kind of image hero had and etc. If we assume him capable of bluffing this way then of course we know the answer what to do. :) According to that I'd also base my line on the turn, either I am calling it or not mainly based how aggressive I see him. Just seeing his AF doesn't really tell us anything how he plays overall cause for this sample the AF isn't really relevant.

      Best Regards.
