      Hi guys,

      Vs 21/16/240h villain with 70% foldtocbet and 31% callopen in bb (0% 3b)
      My goal was to bluff him of a higher PP on the turn!

      Last Q: what to do on blank turn? 9c?

      Oh and another interesting Q :D : Should we shove vs a good reg in this spot since his line looks bluffy? He'd just call flushes

      Hey Farmarchist,

      Preflop is fine.

      Flop is fine for protection. Against a 70% Ftcbet guy you aren't getting a lot of value. You are flipping vs flush-draws and presumably he isn't floating too light.

      If the guy called wider on flop I'd like barreling here a bit more. Theoretically it will be ok, K is a decent card. Given high Ftcbet he will have flush draws more often in his range that calls. The other thing to be said is you don't really have any equity in this spot.

      The play will possibly be +EV but you don't need to make it with 5s. You could easily wait for a high-card hand with one diamond etc.

      vs a 21/17 I don't think his turn raise looks bluffy at all. I would never jam. Even if I would I don't think I would use 55 no .

      On a blank 9 it really depends on villain. Check/fold is probably fine given his higher Ftcbet flop.

      Hey w34z3l! Cool to have you as a new handjudge! :) :)

      Thanks a lot for the comments and yep I agree. I would be way better with 5d5x. I also would bluff way to much otherwise
