      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      SB: $27.15 (271.5 bb) VPIP: 37, PFR: 26, 3B: 11, AF: 2,0, Hands: 68
      BB: $8.65 (86.5 bb)
      UTG: $7.24 (72.4 bb)
      MP: $10 (100 bb)
      Hero (CO): $10 (100 bb)
      BTN: $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q A
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN folds, SB raises to $0.95, BB folds, Hero raises to $2.35, SB calls $1.40

      Flop: ($4.80) 7 Q 5 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.30, SB folds

      Decided to pull out a small bluff. What should be our plan postflop? Bet once if called slow down or given that its 4bets we play for stacks with our TPTK?

      I would call preflop cause in these spots if he's agro which he is, his 3bet is bigger than 11 so we are slightly ahead of his range and in position + he can spew postflop. How you played it I would played it for stacks

      Your sample is small but I think in general people at NL10 are polarized with their 3-betting range and will often fold a lot to 4-bets. If you know he's capable of jamming worse hands like AJ/AXs then I think your 4-bet is fine.

      But without your reads being too solid here, you are better off calling the 3-bet.

      On the Flop TPTK is the virtual nuts. I would bet 40% pot here and shove Turn.
