      -----

      BU was a loose aggressive guy who didn't like to give up hands.
      He c/r K66 flop with AK and checked turn and river to induce. In general he was trapping with strong hands.

      Preflop: 3bet for value vs his stealing range.

      Flop: cbet for value and protection from his OC and lower PPs.
      Turn: I tanked and checked the turn as I wasn't sure whether to bet or not. After like 2-3s he made a bet.
      Given my read that he tries to trap with strong hands I decided that this cannot be a strong hand as he would probably check behind with QQ-TT and he would raise preflop with KK+.
      For that reason I decided to call here.
      River: I tanked again as I wasn't sure if I want to call or fold if he bets. Tc completed a possible FD and any Tx now beats me. However, it makes TT less likely.
      When I checked I decided to call as there will be more weaker hands in his range and he quickly (in like 3s) made a shove. I had already decided to call before so I called.
      I felt really confident about this play as I had this 'gut' feeling that he is bluffing due to our previous history. Not sure if this is justifiable.

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that we are better off check/shoving that turn given the amount of money left behind and board texture. He can't fold any draws or pair+draw there.

      As played the river is ugly because we only beat a pure bluff or 66 turned into a bluff.

      Hi Bogdan

      Thanks for the evaluation!

      I haven't thought about the c/shove turn option which I really like! I think it's much better than the line I took.

      Thanks again.

      Besides the fact that c/shove turn is the better line to take, would you consider my bluff catch on the river +EV or -EV in the long run?

      I guess if we assume that it's unprofitable to bluffcatch in lower limits I think it's probably -EV.

      You need 20% equity to make a profitable call there.

      I think that generally, given your reads, this will be -EV at this limit on that board. Almost everything got there (draw wise) so we only really beat super random floats or small pairs turned into a bluff... and I wouldn't expect that many of those at these limits.
