      Hey Noulispa,

      Preflop bluff is fine.

      When you bluff 3bet pf, you hand does not suddenly become a value hand just because you hit top pair. There may be value in this case, but certainly not 3 streets.

      Checking back the flop is a legitimate option, probably the line I'd take, but you could still choose to bet since opponent may call with flush draws.

      Value is starting to get thin by the turn. Maybe you can get called by any worse PP with a club, or any OOP floats with one club, but this range is pretty thin. The advantage of betting is that you protect your hand, but checking back turn and going for thin value on river might be an alternative option.

      On the river it's pretty hard to see worse hands calling unless they are specifically AK. Presumably KJ does not call preflop. I'd probably check back river or bet a lot smaller.
