      I have moved your hand to our hand discussion forum for you :f_wink:

      I think you are playing this hand aggressive enough. You could consider to bet more like 55-60% pot on every street, but that's it. Off course I don't know the buy-inn of the tournament, but shoving the river as bluff would be to optimistic I think against a random player.

      Do you mean a river 3bet bluff? The guy called you twice with gutshot on a flushdraw paired board. If theres a player in the world that you can bet your house on never folding the river, its this guy.

      And I dont believe sizing matters on the result at all. But bigger bet OTT gets you more value, so definetly do that. Anything else is just being results oriented.

      no 3bet bluff. your goal is mainly to play for stacks in this hand. this is why we should bet more. If we got raised on the rive dont we have to assume that we are beat? Thus does a c/c riverline perform better? We dont want to bet fold and Imo villain just raises our riverbet if he has us bet.
