Obviously these flop and turn calls are pretty thin. I do think that if he checks the river I can showdown the best hand a fair bit of the time. The fact that I can occasionally pull off something like this helps to justify the earlier calls. It’s a good time to bluff when I have the bottom of range and the only draw on the flop got there. I think I can rep not just a straight but also 33 and 55. It’s a narrow range, but I don’t think he expects me to bluff often in this spot, either.
