Hero (CO): $5 (100 bb)
BTN: $4.86 (97.2 bb)
SB: $1.68 (33.6 bb)
BB: $3.79 (75.8 bb)
UTG: $5.43 (108.6 bb)
MP: $8.85 (177 bb)

Preflop: Hero is CO with Ks Qc
2 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, BTN raises to $0.40, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.20, BTN calls $0.80

Flop: ($2.47) Jh 8h 8d (2 players)
Hero bets $0.80, BTN calls $0.80

Turn: ($4.07) 3h (2 players)
Hero checks, BTN bets $2.03, Hero folds

Preflop: KQ too weak to call OOP and top of my folding range so I turn it into a 4b bluff. Could fold pre as well
Flop: I need Villain to fold 25% to BE on a 1/3 PSB.
Assuming he arrives at the flop with KK-JJ,AJs+,AQo+, the bet should work often enough if he folds AQs+ (non heart combos), AQo+
Turn: Most of his range should be beating me by now so x/f

Thoughts on my line and thought process?

Re: 5NL KQ

Idk, 4bet bluffing CO vs button with KQos isn't necessary in NL5. When button calls your 4bet he will call your flop bet with almost 100% of his range AJs+ and some pocket pairs. Most NL5 jams JJ-AA button vs CO pre vs 4bet

Re: 5NL KQ

I think the 4bet as a bluff is better than calling the 3bet OOP. Postflop looks fine and I like the cbet sizing on this flop. Turn c/f looks good.

On a general note I don't think there's much reason to be 4betting as a bluff in 5nl. At least not in this spot without a specific read leading you to believe you're getting a ton of folds.
