      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BTN with 8 :spade: A :spade:

      River: ($4.97) Q :diamond: (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero checks

      I now realize that I shouldn't 3-bet bluff unknowns, what types of players should I target/what statistics am I looking for?

      F: I figure I can get the Ace-highs to fold and I've got a few good barrel cards if he calls.

      T: I already told myself that I was going to double barrel in a hope to get weak overpairs to fold. This is probably unrealistic against an unknown, what about if he seemed like a good reg?

      R: Give up, don't think he folds much here. He turns of 52s... :f_cool:

      Preflop I don't mind 3betting but I prefer bluffing here with information.
      We should be looking basically for people who has high fold to 3bet stats over a decent sample or people who fold a lot to cbets in 3bet pots.

      On the flop I like cbetting here. We have two overs plus we have backdoor FD as well and also are IP.

      Turn brings us FD but it's quite a blank card. I wouldn't mind checking back on the turn, since I'm not sure if he folds his PP overall.

      As played, river is fine.
