      BTN: 183.7 BB
      SB: 189 BB
      BB: 100.5 BB
      Hero (UTG): 351.7 BB
      MP: 245.4 BB
      CO: 99.3 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has 4:club: 5:club:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, CO calls 3 BB, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.75, 2 players) 9:club: T:club: J:club:
      Hero bets 3.6 BB, CO calls 3.6 BB

      Turn: ($1.47, 2 players) 7:spade:
      Hero checks, CO bets 7 BB, Hero raises to 26.2 BB, CO calls 19.2 BB

      River: ($6.71, 2 players) 5:heart:
      Hero bets 66 BB, CO calls 66 BB

      Hero shows 4:club: 5:club: (Flush, Jack High) (Pre 42%, Flop 99%, Turn 100%)
      CO mucks K:heart: Q:diamond: (Straight, King High) (Pre 58%, Flop 1%, Turn 0%)
      Hero wins 189.2 BB

      He raises 1/7 flop, 90 hands. VPiP 30, 3bet 0. I bet only 50%, because they would raise with any set, two pair, or even draw, and then I would reraise / call.
      Is it better just bet large, because sets anyway raise and draw call?
      I think that advantage of betting 50% looks either as bluff or I want bluff induce, or have draw.
      So my plan is to reraise flop if he raises, or check turn, because it looks like I give up, and he will almost always bet turn, so I can raise finally.
      So with sets, two pairs, better flush, we anyway end up all in, but I wanted to end up all in also against draws, and I think if I only bet bet bet, I win less than 50 BB, because they fold river. Is it ok?

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: Looks like a loose open preflop from UTG.

      Flop: Draws usually call larger bets as well and it's not like he will call 7cX if we bet smaller.

      So because most of his range reacts the same to a bet I'd make my bet larger (we have no reason to believe that he can be induced to bluff such a board).

      As played I don't mind your ck/raise and river shove.
