Villain who I play the rest of the hand with is a nit with VP of 11 and PFR of 0 although only out of 15 hands so not much of a read.
Second villain who folded on the flop is loose with VPIP of 55, PFR of 0 out of 11 hands.
I know that you should pretty much never bluff in the micros but I felt that this river bluff could have worked.
The flop comes low so i cbet for information. I dont think flop hit the first tight villain but the second villain could have connected with the board as there is a flush draw and possible straight with 67 which could be in loose villain's range. If I am reraised, I would probably fold. Tight villain calls and loose villain folds.
Since tight villain called, I put him on Ace with decent but not great kicker, maybe A5, or a medium pocket pair because he didnt reraise me. On the turn, I bet bigger to represent a made straight but villain called the turn as well.
The river completed a straight which I thought was the best hand. Since it was a straight on the bottom end, villain would usually be splitting the pot unless he had the 7 for the 7 high straight. I could already be beat here since A7 and 77 could be in his range but since I bet the turn strongly, villain could think I have a made straight which is why I make a big bet on the river to win the pot, thinking that villain would not call for a split pot. Was this the right move and thought process?
