      Hero mucked T 8 and lost (-$1.68 net)
      SB showed A Q and won $3.20 ($1.52 net)

      The SB is Tight over 700 hands, I decided to call PF Vs this player because he has a high Open Steal from SB, On the Flop I hate my raise because I am just repping a strong range which is not very beliveable I think it would be better just to do a clasic float when I have such low equity. On the Turn due to my Flop spew I decided to make it worse and Turn spew.

      PF: If he's tight, fold T8o

      F: You have nothing. Not even any gutshot or backdoor potential. Just fold. If you bluff raise T8 here, you are probably bluffing 100% in this spot. Or you are just randomly picking spots to bluff at. We should always pick the best situation for our actual hand to pull off bluffs, unless we are sure that our opponents are really easy to exploit and are really imbalanced.

      For example, if we had the read that this guy bet/folds the Flop with everything except QX and will never adjust to us, then we should bluff raise here with 100% of our range. But then most players are not robots and will know how to adjust to us eventually so we should take a more cautious and balanced approach when we want to exploit them.
