      This guy is pretty strange, but seems to be tight enough to fold vs 3 barrels Tx-. How realistic my assumpiton?
      I know the turn card is good for us, and the river card isn't. Should we bet blank river then?
      2 hands before I was stealing on sb vs his bb and just check-folded paired board with similar structure.

      How good my bluff is? What do you think about bet sizing?

      NL Holdem $0.25(BB) Replayer
      SB ($51.98)
      BB ($22.08)
      UTG ($24.20)
      Hero ($25)
      BTN ($33.06)

      Hero antes $0.05
      BTN antes $0.05
      SB antes $0.05
      BB antes $0.05
      UTG antes $0.05

      Dealt to Hero A:diamond: 7:diamond:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.75, BTN calls $0.75, fold, fold

      FLOP ($2.10) 8:heart: 8:club: T:spade:

      Hero bets $1, BTN calls $1

      TURN ($4.10) 8:heart: 8:club: T:spade: K:club:

      RIVER ($9.10) 8:heart: 8:club: T:spade: K:club: 5:heart:

      Hero bets $5.25, BTN calls $5.25
      Hero shows A:diamond: 7:diamond:
      (Pre 71%, Flop 2.1%, Turn 0.0%)

      BTN shows 7:club: 8:diamond:
      (Pre 29%, Flop 97.9%, Turn 100.0%)

      I think he seems to be really call happy. The aim of the turn bet is mostly to fold out gutshots and ace highs.

      River bet is a little small, i would bet 2/3 pot here if i wanted to bet. But i prefer check folding. I dont thinkhe is necessarily folding something like AT all the time and he can definitely still have some 8x in his range.
