Does this bluff get through enough?

1/3 Seattle with a $300 max bet. I am the effective stack with $225. The villian is UTG.

Villian raises to $15. I call with Queen Jack from the hijack. Everyone folds.

Flop is 10 9 5 The villian bets $30. I call.

Turn is 9 The villian bets $40. I go all-in for my final $180.

My table image is that of a total nit. Is this a bluff that is worth making? The villian would need to call $140 into a pot of $310. Should I have just called the turn bet and saw a river card before deciding whether to bluff on the river as I would still have $140 left going to the river.

    The villian ended up tank calling me with queen queen :s: and I bricked the river.

    Was that a "good" call on the villian's part? She blocks flush draws and the most obvious straight draw. When I saw her hand, I was just surprised that my bluff did not get through as she blocked most bluffs. I thought my turn raise looked incredibly strong as well.

    Your not repping too much when you raise the turn. J9s, 98s, 55, that's 7 combos of value. You have way more combo draws and Tx in your range getting to the turn here so I think V is gna bet/all an overpair a lot on the turn. You have $140 with $170 in the pot if you call turn. Its a perfect stack size to bluff diamonds when it comes, plus your sd outs. I like call turn.

    When this guy bets again with this stack size, I would just take my equity and call. Unless he is a total spazz usually players wont double barrel this card with air. And you dont really have enough o get him off of an overpair or a T. Bart

    Two things to add: (1) What does your hand look like to the villain when you shove the turn? There are straight and flush draws on the board. You hand is either a set/two pair or a draw. (2) Is villain capable of thinking at this level or is she just going with an overpair given stacks and pot size? What have you been able to observe of her behavior?

    Here is her analysis, “I has overpair. I call.”
