Hands that I raise preflop, call flop, and turn reraise jam:
for value:
KQs (?), KJs (?), QJs
as a bluff:
As7x, As6x, As5x

My actual hand was 8s8x, which in hindsight is probably a pretty bad bluff candidate. I block the straight, which is the main thing I'm trying to get to fold, and I have two outs if I'm behind. Hands like 9s9x also a bad candidate.

papacharlie was playing super nitty, so I was opening my bluff range, but still hands like As9x, As8x are better candidates.

I would've reraised the flop w/ hands like A9s, A8s, KTs, K9s, K8s, QTs, Q9s, Q8s, JTs, J9s, J8s, T9s, T8s, etc, etc.

hmmm, maybe KTs, QTs, JTs are actually good calls on the flops, so then my turn shove range could be:

KQs, KJs, KTs, QJs, QTs, JTs (6 hands)
as a bluff:
As7x (3 hands)

which gives me 2:1 bluffs to value, which is perfect because I'm giving him 2:1 pot odds. I can then leave As6x, As5x as bluff candidates for the river.

And then to adjust it for papa being nitty, we can do:

KQs, KJs, KTs, QJs, QTs, JTs (6 hands)
as a bluff:
As7x As6x (6 hands)

To include 8s8x, then we need as bluffs:
As7x, As6x, As5x, As9x, As8x, 9s9x (23 hands)
as well, which is insanely bluff heavy.

So yeah, terrible bluff on my part. Glad it worked out.

Maybe K6-2s and Q6-2s are also in my opening range, giving me an extra 8 value hands, allowing me to include As6x normally and As5x against nits. Still don't like As9x, even against nits.

J6-2s are not in my opening range.
