      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is MP with Q :club: A :heart:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.75, 3 folds, BB raises to $2.60, Hero calls $1.85

      Flop: ($5.30) K :club: 8 :club: 4 :spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $3.50, Hero calls $3.50

      Turn: ($12.30) J :club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $8.00, BB calls $8

      River: ($28.30) J :heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $16.00, BB calls $16

      F: Not sure if I'm defending too wide here?

      T: I like my bet once he checks, he can fold worse pairs or air.

      R: When he calls turn, his range is pretty strong since I'd expect him to barrel most flush draws.

      Ill-timed bluff.

      Hey Raknyo,

      Just a standard vs unknown, if I open from MP and get 3bet from BB I just fold and don't feel to bad about it.

      Postflop on flop + turn is great.

      River barrel is very reads dependent. Really no guarantee it will be profitable.

      Turn bet likely will be fine though, so generally I prefer float-flop, bet turn, give up on river. Also not the greatest river card to bluff since it pairs the board. I don't think it's a huge spew or anything though.
