im all for semi bluffing regardless of the stake. however i really dont see the point in this spot.
firstly, im going to assume based on the VPIP/PFR of this villain that hes never ever folding to Cbets. so playing OOP against him with somethign like K2s isnt ideal (having said that id open it here too).
Hes calling the flop w/ Ax, Qx, maybe even 9x, as well as JT, flush draws and all the retarded shit hell call. So you kind of have to expect to be called here. again betting here not ideal cos were drawing, but im all for building the pot. since youre OOP, i can only really suggest betting smaller, maybe like 1/2 pot on the flop since youre going to have to give up a lot of turns for the reasons stated. but yeah as ive explained, theres really no benefit to betting the turn here. so nh
Turn comes a total brick. if you Cbet here, he is calling you with literally the entire range
that hell call on the flop. therefore, im all about your check. should he have bet here, i still think hes gunna peel the river if you checkraise, so there isnt really any point.
if you insist on putting more money in the pot, i think you have to x3 barrel for all the times hes gunna have draws, Qx, 9x, etc by the river, but yeah thats only if you think he can fold them
