      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, A.
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.75, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.50.

      Hero checks, MP3 bets $1.00, Hero calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($3.6) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      River: ($3.6) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.00, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.6.

      he is unknown.
      I thought his CB means pocket pairs or air .
      I bluffed on the river and tried to rep Kx or J and hoped to make PPs fold.
      was my play okey?

      Hey,

      vs unknown I'd just go for c/r otf (smallish getting good prize). Floating is great, but you know nothing about him + OOP => guessing game. You let him realize eq etc.
      Just go for the simplest play imho, which is even more +ev in spot like this because you won't be able to adjust your game at all..

      Just for instance - I'd love to call against barreling type of player because my A/Q is barreled by his whole bluffing range + you dominate all his hit pairs, which just pays off so much..
      Ofc if you miss ott and you know he's barreling a lot then it's better to plan just calling flop and c/r the turn(river) for getting more value from dead money, however, as I said you have no info so we can't make assumptions like that :-)

      Hey,

      I think your play is fine, although your hand will often be the best.. You can make him fold 9x and some smaller pairs here which is why I think your hand is quite often the best vs a hand like T8, 76, etc.

      You have 2 overs that he'd rep, backdoor flush and showdown value, I think floating OOP is fine. I agree with KillerFishes about possibly check/raising the turn although you don't represent a big value range, you will only be attacking the weak part of your opponent's range.

      thank you,and one more question, is there any stats on HM that I can know how much % opponent is floating on the turn?

      Uhm, fold to cbet and raise vs cbet.. if he doesn't fold and doesn't raise, he calls.. There should be a call cbet stat, but I never used it, I just made deductions from the others.
