      Preflop: Is this a standard 3 bet spot? I think I get more information than just calling and generate FE so it's optimal..
      Flop: Standard C bet as the flop hits my 3-bet range but CO calls.
      Turn: I give up
      River: CO checks when the 4th club hits and I opt for a bluff because he can't call without a club and doesn't like his hand enough to throw in a value bet. Is this a decent spot for this play?

      Hey K,

      I think preflop is marginal. I prefer calling at NL4, makes more sense since people generally don't open raise wide ranges.

      Postflop, I dislike your cbet a lot. That board also hits his preflop 3bet calling range a lot. Ax and Kx are always in his range, you have no equity. Check and give up. You should not have bluff cbets in this spot vs him. He is somewhat on the tighter side preflop, you should only have value hands, therefore actually hit this board hard and cbet for value in 99% of cases.

      On the turn, giving up is fine. On the river, it's always a hard spot to say for sure. From your side, it makes sense to bluff, there's no certainty he folds Ax though. It's a good spot, he should fold enough of the time but he clearly has showdown value. I think your sizing is a bit too big. You try to make him believe you have a hand like AQ with Q :club: . Would that bet so big? I think 25bb is enough here. His range should be fairly inelastic.

      Thanks! So I pretty much misplayed this one

      By inelastic do you mean that his call or fold decision will be pretty much the same anyway and won't change too much based on my bet sizing?

      Yeah, that's exactly what inelastic means. There are different levels of that though, minbetting is still called more often by many ranges and so will 100x pot shove face more folds than pot sized bets. :)
