      Hi,

      It's kinda thin value bet. he might call with worser 9|77|6x. it mainly depends on the opponent. Against most TAGS your hand is really a bluff catcher since they won't call with worse but might bluff with a busted clubs FD or SD.
      On higher stakes people can pay off with worser hands if you have a wild image and they think you are bluffing but it's usually isn't the case in NL5.
