      Pre Flop: ($0.30) Hero is BTN with T :heart: K :heart:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.60, Hero calls $0.60, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.50) Q :club: J :club: 2 :spade: (2 players)
      CO bets $0.80, Hero raises to $2.60, CO raises to $5.80, Hero calls $3.20

      Turn: ($13.10) A :heart: (2 players)
      CO bets $18.29, Hero calls $13.60 all in

      River: ($40.30) J :heart: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      Final Pot: $40.30
      CO shows A :club: 2 :club:
      CO wins $4.69
      Hero wins $38.29
      (Rake: $-2.68)

      My plan was to call 3 bet on flop and bet bluff on any club on turn if he checks. First question is how big the bet bluff should be if he checks on turn when turn comes a club. Second question is what are we going to to if a club comes and he bets (1/3 pot, 1/2pot and pot size)?

      Hi Ezeras,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: We get roughly 25% pot odds to call that flop 3-bet and we only really have 6 clean outs for just 12%. So your raise should be a raise/fold there.

      Why were we planning to call the 3-bet versus unknown? Did you expect him to try and 3-bet bluff us? Why?

      If turn is club and we want to bet you don't need to make it more than $7. IF a club comes and he bets we should be done with the hand but really we shouldn't be in that spot to begin with.

      There is implied odds to call and we can bluff on a club card. Isn't it enough for a call? I didn't expect him to play his flushdraw like this.

      Hi.

      Flop: not raising here. Dont see why i should raise this unless im deep. He can 3b flop with combo flushdraws.

      The flop call is marginal but still ok. I think the gameplan is fine to bluff a club, halfpot should suffice. Not betting a blank cos i think we get checkpushed a lot on the turn.
