      Hero wins 47.88 BB

      3bet 19% vs bu, calls from blinds vs bu QT+, A9.

      I noticed I make mistakes when somebody raises me and to me looks as obvious bluff. Then I try to win the pot, but I think I do it in a wrong way. If I play honestly and fold each time they min raise me from bu, then it would be bad I guess.
      Is it ok to shove turn with fd and oesd? I do it primarly because I think that he raises me since I dont represent much, and he should have a lot of overcards in his range which have to fold on turn. I dont expect fd or 5x to fold too often.

      So wanted to aks what is the better way to win the pot and not risk too much? I didnt 3bet, because he can shove with any too cards since my 3bet looks also as pure bluff (maybe sometimes with fd).
      When I hit nuts (or see myself ahead of opponents range) I mostly shove overbet if needed, and this way I somehow balance this line, to show that I can bluff (spew) and they really call often overbets. I overbet with e.g sets when the fd misses, and then people often call light (even A high). When I bluff, I try to bluff in spots where it is tough for opponent to call, or I expect him to bluff in the spot as here.

      I do agree that he reps really little here. AS the BU raiser you should have way more trip combos in your range and I doubt he even has 88+ as he should be 3b/5betting it. So he is mostly repping air.

      I think you can 3bet the Flop and you could do that with your over-pairs as well for balance with JJ/QQ/TT. As played it does seem a little spewy -> he could definitely have a flush after taking such a line.

      Alternatively, you could flat the Turn and bluff the River if it's checked to you.
