      OK bluff spot?

      Seems like a good board for him to barrel since there's so many draws, but I'm not sure if my turn raise is a bit loose.

      I think I can have some flushes in my range, not sure if I can rep sets or two pairs very well.
      I didn't think it really mattered though since he will have such a hard time with something like QQ+ with a diamond.

      Once he calls the turn raise I doubted he had any sets or flushes so I just shoved river hoping he folds all his bigger pairs.

      SB: $29.46 (117.8 bb)
      BB: $7.95 (31.8 bb)
      UTG: $25 (100 bb)
      MP: $25.09 (100.4 bb)
      Hero (CO): $37.01 (148 bb)
      BTN: $11.32 (45.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 8 8
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.75, Hero calls $0.75, 3 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) 5 4 T (2 players)
      MP bets $1, Hero calls $1

      Turn: ($3.85) 7 (2 players)
      MP bets $2.25, Hero raises to $6.50, MP calls $4.25

      River: ($16.85) T (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $28.76, MP folds

      $16.85 pot ($0.84 rake)
      Final Board: 5 4 T 7 T
      MP mucked and lost (-$8.25 net)
      Hero mucked 8 8 and won $16.01 ($7.76 net)

      I think the question we need to ask is what exactly are we trying to fold here? And what exactly are we repping. These spots are kind of tricky because you have to know some info about your villain to make plays like this.

      Also add to the fact that his bet sizing kind of indicates he doesn't have a very strong hand, I personally wouldn't put him on a flush due to his sizing. And I think a lot of people would be tempted to hero fold Tx here when your line looks so strong but I'm not 100% sure how the games are played at your stakes.

      Hey thanks! well i expect him to fold OTT with probably any over pair without a diamond, bare flush draws that he barrels, any air. So basically most of his range except flushes & maybe sets.

      Once he called I think he has to have almost always an overpair with a diamond. So I thought I had to shove river.

      Does it matter so much what I rep when he plays that way? Because I didn't think he could really call down OOP with much.
      I think i can rep flushes some of the time? Although I think I would raise flop with any strong value hand so maybe I don't rep that much ?(

      I think the Turn raise is reasonable with the intention of firing most rivers. You definitely need to have some bluffs in your turn raising range in order to get paid off with your flushes.

      Not too sure about river bluff. A lot of the time, villain may sticky around with something like AdT or KdT, you also rep fewer combos of sets. So you could perhaps give up on this bad river card and shove other non-diamond cards.
