Abondoned Check-Raise Bluff on the Turn, Half-Measures?

The pre-text is two-part. 1) Playing my ABC game I would fold pre-flop, but understand I need to learn how to defend wider from the BB, particularly against the Button. 2) Also trying to abandon fit or fold and play deeper into hands, with a percentage of hands each street and looking for potential bluffs in the lower part of those ranges. You know, the Poker's 1% thing.

After abandoning a failed check-raise bluff on the turn, when I reviewed the hand later, it looks like this was a good place to follow through with the bluff on the river. I have 98 maybe 87 66,77, 44 for starters at least. Easy to say now given what he shows up with, but seems to me I only took "half-measures."

    Interesting hand. I think another way of playing it is to check-raise the flop. BTN vs BB means both ranges are wide, but if anyone has range advantage it's you, and with the 3-straight/3-flush double backdoors, there are a lot of turn cards you can barrel.

    As played, a river follow through does make sense.
