      I don't like trying to bluff in this spot. You really don't represent much on the turn except KQ, hard to imagine you'd play a set this way on such a board. Plus the 10 on the turn really improves his range a lot, and he already looks pretty strong after raising from early position and betting twice.

      What hands are you trying to get to fold here? From what I've seen of nl4 people don't fold overpairs / top pairs very often.

      I'll have to agree with SPwoodrose. I do think it's possible to run over the right tags by raising lots of turns, but that shouldn't become a standard against unknown 100bb+ guys just hanging around, especially not when they raise from early position then bet twice one of the ugliest boards for their preflop range. Yes you can represent sets and maybe some guys will give you credit for JTs/T9s as well, but you're still surrounded mostly by level 1 thinkers that just don't give a damn about what you're representing, so until you notice somebody making what looks like a tight fold, you should commit a stack to bluffing somebody off a strong perceived range.

      As played after he calls the turn raise just don't suicide jam the river, way too often his decision has been made on the turn whether he's aware of it or not, he's not folding.

      Hope it helps.
