      Hi, guys. Pre I let him continue with his bluffs. Villain: 20/18/8,4/3b BUxMP 9/f4b 50/Cbet IP 3bp 80(55)/Agg 2,4/WWSF 39/7,4K hands. Thanks.
    • Pre - looks like a STD 4bet spot.

      Flop - another example why "slowplaying" worse pairs than AA preflop (especially OOP) sucks - your hand's value drops significantly on this flop, also IMO it's worth to mention that hands that are "bluffing" as 3bets/4bets usually contains an A for blocker/equity vs continuing range purposes. Still, pretty clear x/c vs such size + BDF.

      Turn - x/x.

      River - a pot odds' vs equity computation at this point. Pot odds - 30%. Not going to compare the possible value and bluffing ranges, but don't think you're good enough to have a +EV call and don't think your heart blocker is really that relevant as villain's flushes (unless NF vs which you're dead anyway) should be betting the turn IMO and in general vs such line of yours x/c vs 1/3 and check turn check river IMO villain has a pretty clear value-bet with most of his Ax hands too (even A2s and A5s pre-flop "bluffs" have 2P), so no way you're going to find enough random stuff here to justify calling.
