re: Poker & $5 NLHE 6-max: Bluff raising the flop and barreling the turn on low board
This is a BB vs BTN war. Villains know how to resteal at this level and they do it quite frequently with weak hands.
Also, the villain is pretty much Cbetting ATC on this board. Even when he calls my raise, he could easily have a hand like 76s, 97s, 75s, A4-A7, K4s-K7s, etc. It's not like his range consists solely of overpairs. And even his overpairs like 77-JJ and possibly even QQ-AA will seriously consider folding to this turn bet, given that any 3 makes a straight and I can easily represent sets, 2 pair combos and made straights.

That's what quitters do. They realise that online poker (especially sites like PokerStars) is becoming tough nowadays and they say "I give up. Everyone's too solid nowadays". But I'm not one of those people. I embrace the challenge. I want to be better than the rest. I want to be one step ahead of them. I want to find subtle weaknesses in even the most solid of players. And in this hand example, I think I did that pretty successfully.
