      Dont know what to do when bluff and then hit top pair.
      He could easily have Tx or KQ, KJ, but also he could hit two pair or straight. Should I bet / fold river?

      Hi mla,

      Preflop: looks fine.

      Postflop: Why are you barreling the turn? Do we have any FD there vs a fishy player? I doubt we do at all and our equity isn't the greatest.

      Considering villains range on the river is Kx, Tx, QJ, maybe AJ/AQ I would actually bet 1/2 or so and fold to a raise. There's definitely value in betting vs Kx.
