      Flop is OK, I guess. Standard aggression IP.

      FD OTT... Maybe the time to pot control after he calls OTF. He must’ve liked his hand. Not sure he’s folding and we have nothing so far.

      OTR: Total bluff. Were you tilting? I’ve been following your posts with interest, you’re a better player than me, and I’d definitely check behind here. I doubt he’s folding a hand that’s continued thus far.

      OTT- I would bet little more, because now your opponent can push all in and I think you haven't odds to call and your smaller sizing gets read to your opponent that you haven't nuts or strong value hand

      OTR- I would give up, I think this river isn't good to bluff in this situation, because he never fold Kx hand and probably TT,JJ,QQ

      OTT I would probably take a free card, if you decide to bet your sizing should be bigger. With a draw you need quite much fold equity when you bet it in position to get higher EV for your bet than you would get just by checking.

      OTR I think it's okay-ish. I think you might not have many value hands in your range that wants to play like this so you shouldn't bluff very frequently. But ofc a balanced range still has some 3 barrel bluffs. A missed nut backdoor flush draw that probably doesn't have very good showdown equity seems like a decent option for a 3barrel bluff.

      I think betting this flop is fine, but I wouldn´t go with 1/2. I bet 2/3 because I wanna polarize my range, also it creates good enough of pressure on his 66-88 (if he doesn´t fold them pre, which might be, because I see ppl overcalling with PP). Then on non-club T I would just give up and if I hit my FD (or an A) I continue. If I hit my J I will xb to protect my x range a bit. I bet again 2/3. OTR there will be left 5 USD in my stack, which Im not sure is enough to make enough FE, but I think it should be ok. Anyway, this R card is not good imo and I wouldn´t bluff on it

      Flop cbet is fine. After preflop 3b we should attack such boards.
      On turn I prefer to xb and see a free card.
      As played, I would not invest more on river as the card did not change the board in our favour.
