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

      River: (42.5 BB, 2 players) Q:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Hero shows A:club: K:diamond: (Two Pair, Queens and Eights) (Pre 46%, Flop 41%, Turn 43%)
      BTN shows 3:heart: 3:spade: (Two Pair, Queens and Eights) (Pre 54%, Flop 59%, Turn 57%)

      Is it ok spot to bluff catch? he steals bu 50% and folds to 3bet 49% so I should be ahead of most of hands on flop.

      Since you can barrel on clubs+overcards I would prefer start out c-betting. Even if player likes to float you can always take c/c line on the turn and river.
      Or you have option to turn your hand into bluff ant try him to fold better hand

      Against opponent who likes to raise a lot of c-bets then c/c is reasonable line.

      best regards,
