    $12 pot ($0.54 rake) Final Board: 5 3 J 9 8 Hero mucked T T and lost (-$5.92 net) SB showed 9 9 and won $11.46 ($5.54 net) [/spoiler] Villain seems reggy 18/15, very aggressive with AF of 7.0 over 120 hands. I put him on bluff as I can barrel this board very wide so he can c/r bluff here a lot an d expect me to fold. I opt to call and bluff catch - I am somewhat tilted at this point and know the river was a definite fold but wanted to see what he had. I am not sure if I should have folded the turn. If I think he has a bluff here is it better to 4bet my TT small as a bluff here? An unrelated question, is it possible to edit the title? I missed out on mentioning limit and also was a bit vague.

    I don't expect a tighter reg to be messing around too much on a dry board like that. Of course he could be turning some small pairs or overcards into bluffs but his sizings actually don't look too bluffy to me after the flop. So as played I would fold the turn and not really worry about getting bluffed too much. You will have a lot of strong Jx, overpairs and sets in your range to continue past the turn, so there's no real need to continue with an underpair.

    Given the dry nature of the flop I actually think that checking back is a decent option as there will be only a few worse hands calling the c-bet or even be able to give you more than 1 street of value.
