      Hero (CO): $25 (100 bb)
      BTN: $27.40 (109.6 bb)
      SB: $20.75 (83 bb)
      BB: $25 (100 bb)
      MP: $11.18 (44.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J 9
      MP folds, Hero raises to $0.75, BTN calls $0.75, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) T K 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.25, BTN calls $1.25

      Turn: ($4.35) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.25, BTN calls $3.25

      River: ($10.85) 4 (2 players)
      Hero ???


      BTN was 37/31/10 over 74.
      FtCB: F - 50(2), T - 0(1).
      AG% - 44 (61/42/11).
      WTSD% - 44, W$SD - 50(8).

      Would a PSB be a viable bluff? Villains range is very weak (he should raise all sets/2pairs on the turn) and I don't have many better hands to bluff with (J blocks 4 combos of the nuts).

      I would bluff River. You should note that your Turn fold equity is pretty low because the Ace coordinates the board further, giving many hands like QT/JT/AQ/AJ added equity.

      Not that I think you should check, but you should usually bluff River after betting Turn.

      You would probably need to pot here or maybe you can even consider overbetting.
