      On this flop, i decided to start with ch/c. If i bet he won`t fold a better hand and even if he calls me with worse, he might bluff me on the turn.

      After he checked the flop, i think he can sometimes have a pair but i guess he will often bet the flop, so i decided to call the turn.

      On the river? I don`t think this line is a bluff often?

      Pre flop - 3bet for value is fine.

      Flop - I think we can cb here like 2 dollars. We don't need better hands to fold for us to be profitable. Folding out hands like A5 QJ TJ is fine too and them calling isn't too bad we get value also. By betting small we also set up the chance to bluff on turn and river if TJQ comes.

      Turn - they could bet here with over cards so ill bluffcatch.

      River - they don't usually bluff on the river however his story is inconsistent. Either he as 99-TT or he's betting with 89 or 9T, or slow played overpair or bluff. With our weak check on the flop I think he's more likely to bluff here than if we bet the flop. I think a call or a fold is both arguable. I think he's bluffing often enough for our call to be profitable. More stats on him like his agg and bet vs missed cb and river aggression would help.
