      PRE
      I give him this calling range:
      99-22,AJo-A8o,KJo,QJo-QTo,JTo,ATs-A2s,KJs-K8s,QJs-Q8s,JTs-J8s,T9s-T8s,98s,87s,76s

      FLOP
      My plan is to c/f as this flop hits OPP range pretty hard. I can easily call his small bet, as I have gutshot + backdoor FD.

      TURN
      Plan to c/f again.

      RIVER
      This is a pretty slim value-bet. Is it better to c/f?

      Flop: I would c/f a hand like 88. With A8 with the Ace of diamond, I think I do not mind a cbet with the intention of barreling all diamonds (2 or 3 barrels). While this board is coordinated, I don't think he is ever calling 88-22 here, and he should be folding his mid connectors as well like 78s without diamond flush draw. So if this guy is not very good (probably is since he plays NL4), I just make an exploitable halfpot bet.

      This means your bluff needs to work 33% of the time to be profitable. I think that is the case, based on the preflop range you gave him. And furthermore you can improve on later streets.

      River: I hope you understand that river has a 4 straight. Betting here is just insane. He can easily have so many JX straights and maybe even AQ/AT. You are better off checking and maybe calling or folding. All flush draws missed.

      +1

      with fold equity, gutshot and backdoor flushdraw I would also c-bet your spot.
      Blockbet river/fold to raise should be fine- don´t think you don´t get called too often, but betting small yourself would often get you win the pot (if you´re ahead) and don´t let him bluff his air. If player is straight forward then c/f is also fine.

      best regards,
