Overbet bluffed

I got bluffed off the best hand when I hit top pair on the river but couldn't call a overbet.

My opponent played it well. I didn't think he was capable of such a big bluff because most overbets are for value. Now I know.

This hand shows the value of three barreling and overbetting against an opponent who's trying to get to showdown:

Did he voluntarily show? He must have for you to know his cards. Why do you think he did that? Was it to tilt you or show how smart he was or?

Right, he voluntarily showed. I think he did so to tilt me, show off his sweet bluff and generate action in the future.
If he was looking for more action from me, he's gotten me. I've been playing back at this opponent more since this hand, and I've had good results.

Showing the bluff is so dumb ... always leave your opponents guessing unless you have a darn good reason to show.

I might have raised on the flop.

As many as 12 outs if I need them. But I might not. I'll be ahead much of the time and should have a lot of fold equity on a flop like this, versus a SB opener who so far has only said that he has two cards and more money than I do.

But I wasn't there and so I'm reluctant to say without further info that raising would have been better against this particular opponent.

Ditto what Pirate Lawyer said. Guys that try this often outsmart themselves.
