    C-bet smaller on flop.

    As played, check/fold river unless you get a live read indicating weakness/bluff.

    I like betting the turn.

    As played i think just fold since there is really nothing that you beat that would be floating the flop and decide to bet this small on the river as a bluff. I dont imagine he would be betting a hand like Qcj on the river here.

    Why are you betting turn? For value or as a bluff?

    Unless he had a 100% pure float on the flop 4-ways, he can't actually have bluffs on the river (therefore calling is worst option).

    Dead money + forcing you opponent into making a mistake.

    I can see betting here on the turn. You will get better to fold a lot. One in a while you will also get worst to call. When called you have a nut draw for value on river.

    The worst thing is to get raised off your hand.

    I agree with David and other posters - smaller flop bet allows you to fire second barrel without committing yourself to the pot. I would have liked to bet something like 65 otf and depending on my read, bet 100 ott on a semi-bluff. You have 13 outs against a king, and if he flopped a flush, it will be easier for you to tell. If he c/rs turn, he almost always has a flush. Many players will actually call turn and check river to trap. If he leads river after you've bet flop and turn, it is also a lot more likely he has the flush. Sucks when you get raised off it, though, so I'd make an individual decision based on the player's tendencies + any live read I get.

    If you want to bluff this turn, do you bluff any other non club, non Ace turn? I mean should we double barrel here 100%?
