      iPoker - $0.20 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (SB): 224.45 BB
      BB: 137.5 BB
      CO: 87.4 BB
      BTN: 99 BB

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has T:diamond: J:heart:

      fold, BTN raises to 2.5 BB, Hero raises to 8 BB, fold, BTN calls 5.5 BB

      Flop: (17 BB, 2 players) Q:heart: T:spade: 5:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 8 BB, Hero calls 8 BB

      Turn: (33 BB, 2 players) Q:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 24 BB, Hero calls 24 BB

      River: (81 BB, 2 players) T:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 59 BB, Hero calls 59 BB

      Hero mucks T:diamond: J:heart: (Full House, Tens full of Queens) (Pre 26%, Flop 11%, Turn 0%)
      BTN shows Q:diamond: J:diamond: (Full House, Queens full of Tens) (Pre 74%, Flop 89%, Turn 100%)
      BTN wins 189.05 BB

      2.1k hands 22/19 attempt to steal 40%, fold steal to 3bet 55%
      call cbet 44%, raise 33%, fold 22%

      IS 3bet ok as bluff? I guess it is too weak because he doesnt fold from BU so often and doesnt give up flop.
      I am not sure about my line on flop. If I cbet, he raises as bluff so often, or floats, might have AJ, AK, KJ, T9, J9, 99... which are all weaker, and If he calls cbet I dont know what to do on blank turn. So I bluff catch.

      On turn it is more safe, less combos of Qx. FOld river?

      Hi mla,

      Preflop: I think that 3-betting this hand from the blinds will get us in too many ugly spots postflop as it has poor playability OOP and we can expect to get called often (and to be dominated). And you know he doesn't fold to 3-bets which puts us in a really bad spot. So fold preflop.

      Postflop: As played I rather bet/fold than ck/call there. Playing ck/call is just terrible for our hand because there are so many turns on which we can't do much and I think that calling him down, like you did, is just spew.

      I think that as played you should ck/fold the turn.
