FT 4.50$ HU

      got two hands here from final table HU in 4.50$ sng 36-180 man, slow structure. First hand is a bluff, but I am not sure if its not too crazy. It was first hand of HU and I decided to semibluff flop and raise. Got call. Bet turn, call. On the river I was not sure if I want to continue but I remember as Jason Somerville likes to say "we decided to bluff so we are dedicated to this path" and went for it. Also there was a thing that I would be kind of short anyway so I tried and it worked. I would not do this kind of stuff very often but I was a pretty passive whole final table so I thought that might be time to try some move. What do you think?

      Second hand was kind of unlucky in my opinion, was thinking about raising on flop, then decided not to. Also it was kind of hard for me to call river but against that small bet... Suspicous but could not find the fold. Am I to stubborn not to fold these hands? Thanks for all advices.

      Obviously ended up second as usual after beautiful bluff and one other hand did not take the enemy down A4 against his AK for 15bb. Then lost smaller pot and then KJ hand and then gg flip. Feels like I can never win a HU :D . Thanks for all the advice as usual :) . Hands from pokertracker is from whole tournament/final table.

      1. Dont x/r this hand without backdoor fd and i would also not keep barreling on this turn. Shoving with a fd blocker is also not so good. But what ever i dont think anyway that you can generate enough fold equity there.

      2. X/Shove river.

      1st hand seems like just a call on the flop or give up. I guess those stats are based of the entire SNG. Maybe good to post the HU stats here. 2nd hand is fine I think. I doubt he will call with a weaker K aor you have reads on him that he can do that. No need to change your hand in to a bluff when you have a decent hand against his range.
