      I cbet the flop as a semibluff. I decided to bluff the turn despite not improving mainly because i was scared of a big bet on the turn (despite nothing he did to indicate that he would do that). After he calls on the turn i put him on maybe some overcards, overpairs but more likely some draws straights or flush draws.

      The Q on the river is a relative blank so i assume i'm ahead with Ace high against some of his missed draws but i perceive that he could have some pair + draws some thing like T9,96 86 maybe 64 or 54.

      don't know whether this is a good spot to 3 barrell bluff because the bet on the river may just isolate me against better hands but i figured i could still get some hands to fold that have me beat.

      Turn is a very bad card for us cos it greatly reduces our turn fold equity. However, I think it's fine to continue barreling with the intention of firing some rivers (high cards like K/Q/J). We can fold out 6X/5X with the river bet, and I don't think our hand is quite strong enough to c/c the River.
