Bluffing the river isn't in many players arsenals, and especially so for 3b bluffing the river. Until you know a specific villain is capable of this play, I would assume it is always for value. Now a bad player may be over-valuing a hand strength like top pair, but their intention is value none the less.

If you find you are getting 3b a lot on the river (with hands that don't want to be 3b it sounds like), chances are you are raising them on the river too often and should simply be calling for showdown instead of raising. It's also an indicator that the initial villain bets are for value, which is also what I'd expect on the river particularly in a field filled with weaker players.

So let me get this straight. You know it is a bluff and you are folding?
