1/2 Turn Raise Bluff

1/2, 9 handed, is my bluff fine? Villain 1 is loose passive and has $300, villain 2 is tight passive has $100, and hero covers.

OTTH

Villain 1 limps UTG and it's folded to hero in MP who raises J T $15, villain 2 in CO calls and villain 1 calls.

Flop ($48): K 9 3. It's checked around. Should we actually be c betting?

Turn ($48): 2. Villain 1 bets $20, hero raises to $85. Thoughts?

Re: 1/2 Turn Raise Bluff

i like to just cbet this its a pretty nice board for us to 2 or 3 barrel dry run outs since we will often get called by weak king or guy shot and then they give it up later

KK and 22....Should just be c betting KK, too. Agree, this was not well thought out. In general, we probably just shouldn't be bluffing very often at all at 1/2.

Cbet $30 and continue on a favorable turn such as this and evaluate continuing or giving up on non-favorable turns.

Re: 1/2 Turn Raise Bluff

One reason you raise a hand like JTs from mid position is that when you make a cbet and get called on the flop you often have still have equity even though you were called and likely aren’t the best hand going into the turn. This turn in particular is basically the goat double barrel card (besides a non spade q obviously).

1. It improves your equity by adding a flush draw
2. It doesn’t complete any obvious draws out there.

Your flop bet might get called by some gutshots, mid pocket pairs and weak kings, all of which are likely to lay down to a well sized second barrel. And if they don’t, you have ours to a flush and straight. I’m likely shoving every non spade or king river if I’m called on the turn regardless of if my hand actually completes or not.
