      Hi,
      I c/r the flop in the intention to get the pot at the flop. (I have seen villian bet IP with air earlier)
      After villain checked the turn I decided to bluff the river because:
      1) He didn't look strong to me.
      2) It was my only way to get the pot.
      What do you think? Should I bluff the river? (Or maybe c/r on the flop was worng?)

      Preflop: OK

      Flop: Well, if you have history that he likes to bet with nothing then C/R is fine here - although I probably would just cbet normally myself :P

      Turn: OK

      River: Alright, K might be somewhat of a scarecard for him, but I still don't like it because:
      - Your line doesn't make much sense to me. c/r flop check turn bet river half pot? Maybe you could have AK but meh, it's not that likely. And when I see someone with a weird line, I usually call :P
      - By calling a C/R on the flop he shows that he has a hand that he wants to continue with, and when he checks the turn behind it is clear to me that using this line - calling c/r on flop and checking behind turn - he intends to call the river.

      I bet half the pot because this is all he had. (I just put him all in)
      I guess you right about my strange line. I just did not want to give up the pot.
      I guess that when we play NL10 we should know when to give up because pepole don't tend to lay down their hands even if they are mediocre.
