      iPoker - $0.50 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (SB): 119.72 BB
      BB: 112.64 BB (VPIP: 20.99, PFR: 16.49, 3Bet Preflop: 5.75, Hands: 473)
      CO: 212.1 BB (VPIP: 22.88, PFR: 17.69, 3Bet Preflop: 6.72, Hands: 2,098)
      BTN: 34.78 BB (VPIP: 34.17, PFR: 19.18, 3Bet Preflop: 2.54, Hands: 980)

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 5:spade: A:club:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, BB calls 2 BB

      Flop: (6 BB, 2 players) A:diamond: 6:spade: 9:diamond:
      Hero bets 3 BB, BB calls 3 BB

      Turn: (12 BB, 2 players) T:diamond:
      Hero checks, BB bets 10 BB, Hero calls 10 BB

      River: (32 BB, 2 players) T:spade:
      Hero checks, BB checks

      Hero shows 5:spade: A:club: (Two Pair, Aces and Tens) (Pre 58%, Flop 92%, Turn 73%)
      BB shows Q:diamond: K:spade: (One Pair, Tens) (Pre 42%, Flop 8%, Turn 27%)
      Hero wins 30.4 BB

      Is it ok cbet 1/2 to make him float (folds cbet 33%, probably sb vs bb even less), and bluff catch on later street? Fold river?

      seems like a fine plan to me.

      flop - with a small CB and his tendencies to call CB i think he floats wide, probably not so wide on a A high board but the FD and middling cards do have draws.

      turn - as planned we can bluffcatch here

      river - i think i would call again if he bets this river. i dont expect a T to be betting so big on the turn, his hand on the turn is polarised to a bluff or an A and i dont think A would go for a value bet again on the river. if he had AJ+ i would expect him to 3bet pre flop so against Ax we would split anyway.
