      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:


      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 6, 6.
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $1.50, CO calls $1.50, Hero calls $1.50, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($5.25) 8, A, 3 (3 players)
      MP3 checks, CO checks, Hero bets $2.75, MP3 calls $2.75, CO folds.

      Turn: ($10.75) K (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($10.75) A (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $5.00, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $10.75.

      CO is unknown   MP stats in 11 hands  vpip36 pfr36 af6 wtsd33 w$sd100

      the original raiser MP didnt CB ,so I thought he didnt have flush draw at least.
      if he has A,I thought its weak ace.
      but he is MP so I concluded he didnt have ace.
      my information bet got called so its possible his hand is JJ,TT,99 and thought I could make him fold them if I bet like 80% of the pot on the turn,but stats was not enough so I just checked .
      and on the river ace came. so I tried to look like myself as if I did pot control with ace or flush draw and now I got it.
      and it worked !
      my play was good?
      or turn bet was better? river bluff was actually bad?

      Hi Daisuke,

      This hand has some small showdown value and is too weak to bluff. I give up here. Maybe with some non-pair or something with backdoor equity like JsTs, I might bluff here. With 66, you could hope to be up against KQ and 67s and perhaps some small % of the time you will win the showdown.

      I can see MP playing weak AX or KK/QQ in this manner.

      I also don't like your river bet too much. I am putting him on KK/AX a lot of the time. When we bet here, he only folds JJ/QQ but he has KK/AX more often.
