      Villian float me twice in a row, so I thought this is a good spot for bluff catch him, cause not much he can get there and flush draw is possible. Am right?

      Sure it's fine. The more he bets at us he more likely it is that he's bluffing there until we know he's capable of making betting thinner than most players at nl10. Most of them won't bet anything lower than like TT on that turn and if they do, they usually just check back the river with it. It's possible you'll run into one of these players in that case but you can't (and shouldn't) assume he's capable of valuebetting that thin until you're shown otherwise.

      I have to admit his small river bet looks like value a lot but it's just tough for him to have something to value both turn and river, and people's sizing for their bluffs vary wildly depending on how cheaply they want to get away with it.

      Hope it helps.
