      SB checks, Hero bets $10.15, SB calls $10.15

      River: ($34.80) 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks


      just a line check.

      do you like putting this hand in our flop bluff-raising range?

      my thoughts:

      its too weak to call, but I have nut BDFD, little bit of BD str8 and an overcard, so it might fit well into polarized flop raising range imo

      I am barreling any heart, diamond, overcards and cards that improves my equity. continuing on most rivers, not this one tho.

      your thoughts ? thanks

      Flop raise is fine. I would not always make these plays, but it is good to mix up. Also I would that case raise any pair for value and check back unless turn is heart or diamond.
      You´re likely get called too often on river, so giving up is fine

      best regards,
