      Party, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      MP: $29.86 (119.4 bb)
      BB: $102.48 (409.9 bb)
      BTN: $20.81 (83.2 bb)
      UTG: $26.25 (105 bb)
      CO: $15.55 (62.2 bb)
      Hero (SB): $35 (140 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J:club: A:heart:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, BB calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.50) Q:club: 8:heart: 5:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.75, BB calls $0.75

      Turn: ($3) 9:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2, BB calls $2

      River: ($7) J:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $4.75, Hero ?

      BB is 27/14 after 241 hands with high WTSD 31 and imbalanced aggression frequency 31/35/35 on streets. I decided to try barrel him off two streets. On the river I picked some equity and he bet half pot. There could be some busted draws, maybe straights or low PP for SET mine. Would you put him on bluff considering his stats, or do you thing he would fight back stronger with any monsters?

      JT, QT, T9, T8, Tx with clubs. Soooo many Tx in his range. If he is good with hand reading he can probably bet QJ as well. I would not bluffcatch here, even against someone aggressive on the river.

      There's another problem though. Your cbet and turn bets don't look like value. I expect your flop bet to get you close to 0% FE now or later because you don't bet so small with a hand. If you want to barrel, you need to represent a good hand. A good hand bets bigger so just do that.

      It's just cheaper if it doesn't work this way :P And forgot to mention this is from fast-forward game. Thank you for your advice on bet sizing, I'll try to fix this.

      Hehe, it is cheaper but it's also less likely to work. If not for that, your idea is fine to bet smaller as a bluff. It's bad when your sizing hurts your folding equity. :)
