The hand was played fine. This is not lower stakes and most of times we are facing players who really think the hand and ranges.
OTF we are certainly betting for we can represent a lot of hands, we have initiative and equity.
OTT we lose most of our ability to bluff. We continue bluffing here when it comes another Diamonds, a 4, 7, 6 and 5.
But as long villain also checked behind it’s okay to take our chances OTR by pushing a polarized bet with our missed draws.
When we overbet river, we are representing the aces, kings and eventually straights that got there.
Villain would fold winning hands here more often than usual, so good to us.

I was rethinking this spot and yes: we are overbluffing quite a bit. No problem if we do it in a low frequency versus known clever players. But we must be careful and not get addicted for any spot we picked up some piece of equity.
