Bad play. You're not going to get this guy to fold often enough here. You can do this if the guy gay bets a lot, and you want to pressure him and let him know you can't be pushed around... otherwise, i'm probably folding here often...

So what? The whole reason we make money at poker is because the people we play suck and aren't very observant. It's all very player dependant, you said you had no read there - so, i'm folding.

This is an expensive bluff, because you have to follow through with a river bet if he calls the turn (since many players will call and fold the river UI). Do you really want this pot so bad that you'll put 3 more BBs in praying he folds?

I'd check-fold the turn.

It's a rare 5/10 player that doesn't call down here.

I think you're folding zero better hands in his range. He might fold a 2 there but that seems like about that. Every time I try this I get called down by pocket fives.

I think this is just too expensive. Most players will call this down. In position a raise might be an option, but your out of position which really sucks if he's calling the turn. Now you have to bet the river aswell or give it up. Expensive, expensive...

I think this is a fine bluff if you have a solid weak/tight read.

With no read, you have to fold him out almost 1/3 of the time, and I don't think you are.
