      Preflop is a little fancy, but I like to open A2-5s UTG.

      The hand is tricky. I think I represent a big hand. Villain plays 16/14.

      Range is probably AQ/AK, KQs, 55-JJ.

      Flop: standard.
      Turn: interesting card. His Qx-range decreases (correct me if I'm wrong), which means his 55-JJ-range increases. I put him on a PP now.

      I think he would raise any Qx here, and call any PP. So if I bet the turn, I had to bet the river also. He probably wouldn't fold his pp on the turn, but he (probably) would against a 3-barrel from a UTG-open.

      I decided to bet the turn, and bet any river. Triple barrel bluff.

      Too fancy, or not?

      Preflop I'd only open if there are weaker opponents which we can outplay postflop.

      On the flop cbetting is good.

      I prefer check/folding the flop. The Q makes the Qx combos less, but it make our combos less, so he might not even fold a PP here.

      I prefer giving up on the river. We can only make PPs to fold, Qx is obviously never folding and overall it's a close spot and I would refrain myself from doing triple barrel bluffs on these limits.
