      Hey Ezeras,

      At these stakes I would reserve this type of play for opponents who have already indicated they are 2-barreling a little wider than will be profitable.

      Nothing overly incorrect with check-raise bluffing. 66 does not have as much equity as other types of hands you may bluff with, but 66 is sometimes good vs villains turn-calling range. I.e sometimes your bluff will fail and villain will check back busted draw on river.

      The only thing I might question is your sizing. You could probably run an effective bluff with a sizing closer to $3, so you are really not maximising your risk-reward ratio with such a huge raise.
