Don't bet turn you have no equity.

Maybe we can bluff some rivers if turn goes x/x

I hear this kind of thing a lot but I don't really understand why. I get that from a GTO perspective I want my betting range to be balanced on the average turn card so it makes sense to barrel some hands with draws and, subsequently, equity.

But if my value range is big enough so that my 'bluffing' range is already balanced but could do with a few more combos, aren't combos with the lowest equity and best card removal the next best choice?

T high/9 high/8 high all would be bluffed before this.

It could be okay as an exploit but bluffing turns with no equity hands (you don't even have a diamond to bluff diamond rivers) is not the best strategy.

CO should be cbetting range here but if he does have a X back range. His X back range is going to be hands with SDV most likely.

I do like your sizing though. Usually when it goes X/X OTF we want to use 2 sizing's OTT. A small sizing and an OB sizing.

What do you think your value range is OTT? It's not nearly that big when you use that sizing - definitely not big enough to include a random JTo in there.

Re: give up or apply pressure?

I can see the idea, and I think it is good, but if you think about it, you have a lot of hands with better bluffing potential. All FD (although you should check some of those), all Ax, all 5x, all 6x, all 9 and T high left. However, you do block some QJ and QT, as well as JJ and TT, which villain may take this line with. Not saying he should though.

I think your hand would work better as a x/f Ott, and a river bluff trying to fold out some K high hands. I think the idea is good, and you'll get enough folds to make it close to profitable, as long as you limit this line, and don't use all your hands as bluffs here. Effectively, what hand are you not bluffing here?

Yeah I think you're right, bluffing JTo here is definitely too ambitious.

And I guess my turn value range is two pair +

This is not a good bluffing candidate because you have 0 outs to beat calls, don't block anything significant, and you are devaluating your own outs by making a J or T river not win you the pot

definitely not a concern. villains are not protecting their xb ranges nearly enough.
question - do we get to overbet river?
