      his check on the turn looks weak so I bet, trying to take the pot. Is that ok?

      I like the small Turn bet - It mostly serves as a protection bet and also allows you to obtain some thin value from smaller pocket pairs and maybe even Ace high.

      I wouldn't call it a bluff though (you seem to think that you are bluffing here when you want him to fold). This is mostly for protection, not too much value (though there might be some) and no better hands fold in my opinion.

      Nice hand.
