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

      fold, MP raises to 3 BB, Hero raises to 9 BB, fold, fold, fold, MP calls 6 BB

      Flop: (19.5 BB, 2 players) 3:club: 8:spade: A:diamond:
      MP checks, Hero checks

      Turn: (19.5 BB, 2 players) 6:diamond:

      River: (65.5 BB, 2 players) Q:spade:
      MP checks, Hero checks

      MP shows Q:heart: K:diamond: (One Pair, Queens) (Pre 39%, Flop 3%, Turn 0%)
      Hero shows A:club: 5:club: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 61%, Flop 97%, Turn 100%)
      Hero wins 62.24 BB

      I use this hand to 3bet and 5bet shove vs very aggro 4betters as bluff.
      When I hit A, I usually try to have very small pot at the end.

      Is it ok to call his raise, and call river if he bets? I see it as total bluff, because he would bet turn himself when I am so passive.

      Hi mate,

      Yep, it's OK to play like you did in general, althouhg I would be worried on a card like Td since it completes some possible draws he could try to c/r bluff. Overall though he will have mostly air. I think it's fine to call given good odds and then adjust when needed based on results. When you show a lot of weakness against regs, you can bluffcatch a bit more often after betting for thin value.
