      I don't bluff very often... As I generally play SSS, but trying out BSS, I played this hand.

      Had been at this table for about 100 hands and had an extremely tight image. And this was the last hand of the session. My bluffs usually extend to a 2/3 pot size bet that's then folded when I meet resistance, and then it's usually only a semi bluff, but this hand something else took over....

      Flop: You should check/fold here. Against multiple opponents the cbet here will be -ev mostly both won't fold on this board (there are boards where you can cbet against multiple opponents but this is not one of them).

      Also, if you cbet, you must cbet bigger. $1 would be good here.

      Turn: Well, you go for a check/raise here. If we were playing against a relatively decent fullstacked (!!) player who has floated us often then it's actually not that bad, however in this case we're playing against a midstack who's obviously not a decent player because of how much he bets on the turn, so this move is definately not very good because this player just won't fold anything.
      Just keep check/folding

      River: You went through with your bluff and shoved the river. This is really bad. Why? Because villain only has like a little over half potsize left in his stack! He should be commited to call with nearly any hand he has here, you got lucky this time that he folded (must've been chasing a flush ?( ).

      Basically, refrain from doing this kind of stuff on NL10 and unless you know what you're doing. You should've been check/folding this hand from the flop.

      When I will be back from work, I will give some good examples why we shouldn't try bluffs on midstacks not thinking fish...

      Im playing more or less straightforward vs unknowns and might try a bluff vs a tight regular only. Your image served you well in this hand but he prob was on FD.
