      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q J
      UTG folds, MP raises to $1.50, CO folds, Hero calls $1.50, 2 folds

      Flop: ($3.75) T 6 2 (2 players)

      Results: $60.75 pot ($2.50 rake)
      Final Board: T 6 2 4 9
      Hero showed Q J and lost (-$30 net)
      MP showed A A and won $58.25 ($28.25 net)

      He has x/f flop 70%.

      On the river I expect his range to be capped at Tx with the occasional set of 99, this is why i make my overbet as I expect him to fold all of that range.

      Turns out I was wrong and I want your opinion on villain's play. My fold vs cbet/Tcbet/Rcbet are 48/38/33 so I did not understand why he played it this way.

      this spot really depends on whether villain is capable of adding monsters in his c/c range like he did here.

      i think it's reasonable to pull off such a bluff from time to time but you probably should have bet larger on Turn as well if you want to bomb the river.

      now you should be more selective with your 3barrel bluffing spots - writing down this note on villain is extremely important.
