      HE OPEN RAISES ALL SB SO I DECIDED I FLAT CALL IN POSITION WITH A WIDE RANGE AND USE POSITION TO STEAL.
      FIRST HAND AFTER I DECIDED THIS... COMES THIS HAND

      MY QUESTION IS ... IS THERE ANYTHING WEIRD THAT SAY I AM BLUFFING , BY LOOKING AT THE BET SIZES I MAKE ON TURN AND RIVER? BECAUSE I DON'T UNDERSTAND IF MY OPPONENT WAS THE TYPE THAT IS JUST LOOKING FOR HERO CALLS OR HE MADE THE CALL BECAUSE OF MY INCONSISTENT BETTING?

      Hey,

      Usually the answer is a mix of both. Your bet sizing is a bit inconsistent but also think about your range. How many flushes do you bet like that? If it's A high flush or nothing, his flush is as good as J high flush. :)

      That might be true but he doesn't know exactly what you would do. He just has a certain perception, usually most people view opponents more polarised than they are. I think your line would be fine with more consistent bet sizing but this won't guarantee a fold from your opponent when holding a weak flush. He will fold other hands that beat you though so bluff should still be +EV.
