Hi urgetintaxed.

Nah, you are not bluffing on the river, you are betting for value and hoping the villian is stuck so deeply he has to call on less (as he usually always should there unless he drew way too thinly early on). If you had bet LESS you are certainly not folding top/top (I hope) for the tiny bit mroe it would be to call if HE moved in, so if you think your read says your best value lies in getting em in by moving em in, then your move is fine on the riv in my opinion.

As for your read, you give no info upon which to base an opinion really, but 89 got there (as did 34), but lots of other hands MIGHT call your C/R with worse if you have the right info. You jsut dont give me enough to go on to say if you had that info, but the results (and your post) show you probably did...

Good hand!

Hope it helps.
