      Hello
      SB-17/14/3.6/1200h/resteals on sb 12(73)/cbet in 3b pot 80(10)
      BB-25/17/1.9/10kh/CC 3bet 2.8/bet vs missed cbet 45(84)
      If BB have some hand then he bets on River i think and maybe it´s time to bluff.
      On River vs Regular stats opponent what bluffing size is ok?
      Turn is Raise or call better option?

      Hey,

      Why don't you bet flop? To me it looks like a great spot to bet since the huge majority of their hands would bet and you can represent a few good hands. You also have some equity with the gutshot and backdoor straight. If you get raised, it's an easy decision and chances are you wouldn't have won pot later anyway vs a check/raising range. If you bet and get a call, you can give up while also realizing that 20% equity you have so that's a pretty good spot to bet river IP.

      As played, I don't think you can bluff.. I mean.. you could given BB's weak line but in practice you never have a value hand on the river. You basically rep A5s on the river only if you check back flop, call turn and then bet river... Don't you bet AQ on flop? Do you vbet AJ on the river or AT? That's about all you could represent.. AJs, ATs and A5s. You never have a flush imo, you bet it too often on flop since your flushdraws are often combo draws. You don't bet KQ or KJ on the river either. It's actually a good spot for BB to check/call Ax since it blocks your Axs value hands so you are more likely to be bluffing.

      Turn call is fine btw, don't think you can rep enough there either and now you have much more equity.
