      BTN shows 9:spade: 9:heart: (One Pair, Nines) (Pre 52%, Flop 12%, Turn 5%)
      Hero shows T:spade: Q:spade: (One Pair, Tens) (Pre 48%, Flop 88%, Turn 95%)
      Hero wins 194 BB

      I usually go preflop all in with any PP or A2s-A5s as bluff, versus BU who steals wide and 4bets often. This guy attempts to steal 67% which is really wide, and then 4bets from sb 2/2, 5/9 co, and 4/22 bu.
      QTs is probably very bad to stack as bluff, but I expected to have enough FE because his steal is 67%.

      Stick to pairs + some Axs sometimes (pairs are best). You will lose less from people that 4bet so wide that you can 3bet/5bet QTs than from people that 4bet too tight and you actually spew by 3bet/5bet. On average QTs is way too wide, you need a very specific player type over a large enough sample, probably like 3-4k hands against him.
