Good day all!
I have an interesting hand I want to show you guys (I found it interesting).

Did I take my bluff too far? Was it the wrong spot? Maybe 1 street too far, but I didn't want to show I missed my flush.

Thank you in advance!

Hi Awwesome,

No reads are given, but in 2NL generally don't be bluffing much.

I like c-betting the flop here, but think we should not barrel the turn. The range of hands that calls our flop bet will be lots of 1 pair+ made hands and draws, and this turn card is not a scare card to that range, as it improves some of them to 2 pair or straights, and does not improve the preflop raiser's range. Check and take a free card, or call a bet may be ok if he makes one depending on sizing. As played, check/fold the river, don't think we're getting bluffed here and the 9 is not a scary card to any of his range really so we're not getting better hands to fold.
