      Hi GreedyFly,

      Preflop: looks fine as a bluff

      Postflop: I think that the turn is a fold. I doubt a lot of people will bluff there in a 3-bet pot this way. He may occasionally have a Jx type hand or weaker Ax but weaker means something like AT/A8 in my opinion.

      As played river bet is fine because we can get value from Ax.
