      0,05/0,10 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with 2:heart: , 2:spade:
      UTG+1 folds, Hero calls $0,10, 4 folds, BU raises to $0,30, SB raises to $1,00, BB folds, Hero calls $0,90, BU folds.

        SB was playing solid tight agressive game, so he's either on AK or high pockets

      Flop: ($2,40) 7:heart: , J:spade: , A:heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $2, Hero raises to $6,00, SB folds.

        he was thinking a while and came up with this "go away" bet which was different from he's betting pattern so I decided to bluff here, risky but worked out

      Final Pot: $10,40

      well.. I would fold preflop to SB's 3bet because you don't get the odds to call and original raiser (BU) is still behind you. I wouldn't bluff to this kind of board either even if I would be 100% sure he has QQ or KK here, too many times they hold up to their pockets to the very end on this limit.

      Hi rubysilesia!

      I agree with degnic. You should fold preflop because you don't get the odds and the original raiser on the button still has to act behind you. As played I wouldn't bluff in this spot. His big bet can also mean that he wants to protect his AK or AQ against straight and flush draws. And if you put him on "either AK or high pockets" your bluff will not work out often enough to be successful.

      Good luck at the tables!
