re: Poker & Rate my bluff skill please..
I like the raise that narrows down your range but I feel the bet on the flop reeks more like a c-bet and lacks conviction. If you did have AK and you did make the str8 would you half pot raise? I would probably 3 bet (check raise) you on the flop after sensing weakness/uncertainty as my range could also include AK from our pre-flop action.
Have you thought about what you would do then?

Ah yes, I see you already answered my question. I would win this pot then, tx. =)
All I can say is, if you're going to bluff do it with conviction. Anything more than 60% pot would show strength. Perhaps you didn't have to raise to 4k pre-flop (villain min raised to 1.6K) you could've gone for slightly below double say 3K or even 2.9K which will give you a smaller pot (7K instead of 9K) to barrel on the flop and your same 4.8K raise would've seemed very strong.

I give you 10/10 for being condescending but you get 1/10 for being helpful. Based on your vast experience, practice & skill what do you see wrong with the play and how would you rather see it executed instead? But I guess that requires people skills, something that was clearly not involved in making these posts.
