      Turn card was really bad for me, so didn't want to bet too big to see villains reaction. Calling his 3-bet on turn is okay I think, but what about my river play? That over-bet shove looks quite bluffy to me and he didn't take too much time to make that bet.

      Hi Riks12,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Cbet on this dry flop is fine. We can expect villain to call a lot.

      As played I feel we need to bet/fold turn but I wouldn't bet so small where we can induce bluffs from the opponent (because we really don't know that he can bluff yet).

      He plays the hand as a Tx and he has many of those in his range BvB.

      People generally don't overbet shove as a bluff at these limits so even though we may have caught him this time we got lucky (in my opinion).

      Why do you think bet/calling turn is fine? Do you expect him to bluff or raise worse?
