      Put these hands both here since they are against the same opponent. Heads Up he is bluffy and tilted, barreling constantly every hand. I think he cooled off a bit when the table filled, but I know he's capable of going all in on a bluff.
      Can't provide accurate HUD stats since some hands are HU and some SH.

      Hand 2:

      Do you think I should have bet/called river instead? I think I'm safe from a T, doubt he is overcalling like that on flop with T. On river he either has a monster, a draw or Qx.

      I decided to check to induce a bluff, but if I bet he will probably shove with this same range, and KK doesn't feel great to call off a stack here on this river, even against this guy

      Hi Metza,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: 3-way on two broadway flop we can bet bigger, especially OOP to both guys

      On the turn we can continue betting larger.

      And I can't see why we are not just betting the river for $2? He may check back weaker Qx and hands like JJ. And if we bet $2 he can look us up with all those hands.

      As far as inducing a bluff goes what hands can bluff there because a rare KJ or J9 and we block KJ. We can't really expect villain to have a ton of J9o like he had it here can we?

      So unless you expect him to bet ALL/Most of his value range be the one betting.
