      Everest - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 3 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BB): $26.05
      BTN: $26.50
      SB: $21.65

      SB posts SB $0.15, Hero posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.40) Hero has 8:diamond: K:diamond:

      fold, SB raises to $0.75, Hero calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.50, 2 players) T:diamond: A:diamond: 5:spade:
      SB bets $1.15, Hero calls $1.15

      Turn: ($3.80, 2 players) 4:spade:
      SB bets $1.05, Hero raises to $3.10, SB calls $2.05

      River: ($10.00, 2 players) J:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets $5.15, SB calls $5.15

      I know I shouldn't bluff on the river, but is my reasoning correct here?
      Opponent CBets 93% (300 hands), I almost never bluff.
      On the turn he shows weakness no? On the other hand he did CBet into a wet board, but with 93% CBet that wasn't surprising. Should I just have gotten the cheap card on the turn and given up on the river?

      Hello PaulieV,

      If he is CBetting that huge percent and also opens maybe a lot then I'd just threw a raise right on the flop and gain fold equity right there instead doing it on the turn whilst he is giving us decent odds.

      Though if we do that on the turn then you rarely going to have tons of fold equity on the river, just something like QJ will fold, otherwise KQ got there and also Ax is possible in his range.

      Best Regards.
