      Hey RiverDiver,

      2 things to say about preflop bluff.

      1 - Vs min-raises I recommend you make it 7bb or 8bb, 6bb 3bets don't seem to get enough folds.

      2 - Vs a min-raise the range of hands that you can profitably defend widens. Against a 3x open it might be a mistake to flat A8s and therefore it goes into your bluff range. Vs a min-raise you can likely defend this hand profitably in position, so it's a waste to turn it into a bluff. You want to pick weaker hands that you cannot profitably call with.

      Postflop looks reasonable. I don't see any reason to bluff-raise and you are getting priced in with Ace-high.
