      Tried to get rid of the limpers with this marginal hand. After my cbet I gave up but then I faced a weak bet in the river. Thought about bluffing the river but from my experience from NL10 even a bottem pair can call me here so I forgot about it.
      I Called to get info on villian.
      Would you try to bluff the weak bet?

      I would definately just check preflop. Q8o is not even a hand Id consider picking up dead money with from the BB. Remember raising from BB = OOP the rest of the hand, unless youre against SB. And OOP = lose :)

      Flop cbet is standard.

      River, well.. I think in terms of EV you should actually fold because you're almost never ahead (notice how the FD completed too). However if youre just curious and don't mind spending 20c on it then sure go ahead :tongue:
