      Hi, i lose several times every game to this type of situation :

      Known players:

      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with T:spade: , T:club:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0,50, BU folds, SB calls $0,45, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1,10) 8:club: , Q:spade: , 5:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero raises $1,63 (All-In), SB calls $1,63.

      Turn: ($4,36) 4:heart:
      River: ($4,36) 3:diamond: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $4,36

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of tens (Ts Tc)
      SB shows a pair of queens (Qh Kc)

      SB wins with a pair of queens (Qh Kc)

      i raised all in, cause my 3/4 pot bluff would be more than a half of my stack.

      So is my semi - bluff ok (or bluff, when i have like AK or AQ instead and hit nothing), after villain checks?

      Villain hits only 33% of the time, you can bet $0.7 as a c-bet to see where you are standing on Q85r board.

      Shoving is also ok but I think with a $0.75 bet, you know as much as a $1.63 shove thus using less to get the same result

      Best regards,
