      here i was trying to bluffcatch the river

      after he c back turn, i think he could have a whole bunch of busted draws,
      dont think he vbets Jx with that sizing and i thought K was unlikely...
      bad call in the long run?

      Seems fine to me. I would think that he almost never checks back turn with KX. So we are mostly against AJ which he may bet for thin value on the river, and a ton of busted flush and straight draws.

      I think the line you take seems great, though you always have the option of checking the Flop instead as well.

      How we can check on flop?? We would be screaming we have a medium hand if we c/c... check/raise is out of question. So check on flop is really bad I think. Why do you think checking would be an option??

      I also don't like checking flop...we could get the pot immediately or get also called with villains flush draw etc.

      Sure. but this is NL5. Do you really expect someone to just 3barrel bluff you when you check? I don't, so by default I just call 1 or 2 streets and hope he bluffs. Against stronger players, betting makes more sense, or checking could also be good if you have a strong balanced checking range (like if you check some KX, some monsters, some draws).
