      Hi guys,

      I had the feeling that he'd bet Jx otr and has Ahi or bottom pair or something a lot of the time. Is it Ok to bluff those hands? Or should we worry about Jx hands cause u never know with passive guys...

      And is this a good spot for delayed CB?

      Hi Farma,

      Preflop: looks fine even though it's a bit on the looser side.

      Postflop: Flop is relatively dry so betting is perfectly fine.

      I think that the turn is a terrible card and we can check with the intention of giving up.

      As played the river is not a great card to bluff on and I'd be surprised if villain can even fold a hand like 2x or 44. Maybe A high folds but if he didn't bluff the river he may look to go to showdown and call anyway.

      So I would not bet it.

      A high may fold but he may not even have that many of those in his range since we really don't know what he can float with.
