      So I 3bet very small since this player is shortstacked and folds like 85% to 3bets.

      I don't know if this is a cbet or not. I put him on a very wide range since he doesn't have to call much preflop and I think a lot of this range (overcards) are folding.
      Looking back I don't think this is a cbet because pp's are probably going to call wider since there's no A/K which hits my range and there are also a bunch of SC's who can call.

      But I have 2 main questions about his hand and I'm getting in these spots way too often:

      1) On the turn, can we bet as a bluff since he doesn't have a flush often? What if he merely calls, barrel again on river?

      2) As played checked on turn and we're at river. He checks again so he has marginal showdown. Can we therefore bet for a bluff? I didn't think he was going to fold the pp's with a club in them so I didn't, but I guess a lot of hands will give up here (overpairs, sets, toppair, pocket pairs without clubs)

      Pf is fine vs described villain.

      Flop is close. On one hand bbs cold calling 3b range is supposed to be pocketpair heavy.

      I would not barrel turn without a club. Having a club not only gives u additional outs but also blocks possible flush combos from bbs range. However note that ur 3b is rly small at only 5bb. Thats the same size as a normal isoraise. I wont be surprised if bbs range is rly wide here.

      So i would cbet flop with a club and give up without a club.
