      Poker Stars, $0.08/$0.16 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      BB: $22.35 (139.7 bb)
      MP: $19.45 (121.6 bb)
      CO: $16 (100 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $22.36 (139.8 bb)
      SB: $16 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q T
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, SB folds, BB calls $0.24

      Flop: ($0.88) 2 8 4 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.56, BB raises to $1.44, Hero raises to $3.20, BB folds

      I decided to pull out some bluff on flop because our buddy is a bit check/raise heavy. Also he is quite wide here, might decided to bluff with overs and other missed pocket pairs.

      Thoughts about my decision?

      Hello,

      In a vacuum I think our move is good here although it would be better to have something like QsTs in case he decides to call us.

      Overall, people at these stakes are not really capable of playing back at reraises when they bluff raise, so I would expect him to play pretty straight-forward here especially if you've been folding before.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Sizing is good? We are deeper so it means if i had value hand i should be raising larger?

      I think it's fine. We could probably make it like $3.8 but it isn't making such a big difference at all.
