I think this hand plays much better as a flop lead and you should use 98/887 combos for your c/r bluffs.

Re: c/r bluff 3 barrel vs utg opener

the utg raises 21 bit

normally means heavily AAxx in games I play

A Ott therefore is a bad bluff card, then the otr barrel is burning money

just my thoughts

Re: c/r bluff 3 barrel vs utg opener

While you wrote Ao on the turn, villain could have a flush draw, which is important

I prefer xc to xr, we can still apply pressure and generate incorrect pressure by leading turns, I don't like turning a good flop for our hand into a bluff because i think other lines are more likely to be profitable and hero still has the option to turn the hand into a bluff on a later street

Easy c/c flop, why turn a hand with decent equity against almost anything into a bluff?

You also don't have one blocker to the nuts.

A competent UTG shouldn't be c-betting flop very often with the hands you want him to fold.

Semi bluffing is a powerful weapon against tough opponents.

This isn't holdem. Realising equity as cheaply as possible is the best option in most cases.

I mean, he's about to bluff off a whole stack with no blockers...

Re: c/r bluff 3 barrel vs utg opener

Do you have any sort of read on V? How often does he raise pre, cbet, call down? It seems like you just kind of decided to 3-barrel regardless of the runout. That's not automatically bad but without reads it could be. Any idea of your own image at the time of this play? Do you appear loose? Tight? Have you been caught bluffing before?

By the time you barrel the river you're basically repping 68 without blockers when V could easily have Aces up or better... utg opener should have more AA and Ax combos so I think the turn is a red light. As someone else said you picked up showdown value on the river so it might make more sense to check and mayyyybe call if he fires back.

I don't like it. don't want a jack or a ten in your triples.... I just give up turn tbh its not the best turn and you prob need some c/r give ups on literally the best card for his range so this is the best one.
