      I have lots of reads and notes of villain. He's mainly tight & very thinking player, but the hands he involves himself into he's ready to make big bluffs. Usually on turn I keep betting but this time wanted to play it different and check/called like I would play any pocketpair. On river I make a kind of bluff-blockbet to present any pocketpair again in hope he will raise me. Any street where I should've played different?

      Hi degnic!

      If you had these reads it is played well imo. I really like the idea of the "wannabe blockbet" on the river. You sometimes have to make these small riverbets even with really strong hands because otherwise you become too readable with your blockbets.

      Good luck at the tables!
