      is the river bluff bad
      i really didnt expected him to call the turn with hand he had
      i thought he had a lot pockets in his range given his call 2bet.
      when he check call the turn i thought he had showdown value but not super strong and i thoght the ace would be good to bluff on the river since i could have Ax of hearts or AJ.

      but i had hard time seing what hands in his range he would be check calling turn maybe KhJh or AhJh

      Hey,

      I don't like your small cbet sizing on the flop here. Your opponent's range consist greatly out of pocket pairs that don't fold to one small bet. Calling raise seems fine although not thrilling. On the turn, I think you have to decide to check back or to bet turn and river, never just turn since he's shown you he has some showdown value.

      If you think he folds often on the turn then you should not bet river but I'd say he folds no made hand on the turn, just air. That means my plan is either check back or bet twice.. Now, if you bet twice, your sizing is bad. You get next to no folding equity now and you win less when you win the pot often on the river. You want to bloat the pot a bit for 2 reasons:

      1. You look like a value bet all the way -> folding equity
      2. You win a bigger pot/force him to put in dead money on the turn because he folds on the river thus the bigger the pot you win on the river the better.

      @Spoiler: I wouldn't put that in his range either but once he does that on the flop, he is obv not folding on the turn when he improves. What note you can make of it is that he overvalues AK postflop without a pair.
