      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($10.05)
      Hero ($11.39)
      UTG ($12.88)
      CO ($7.41)
      BTN ($13.60)

      Dealt to Hero 8:diamond: 8:heart:

      fold, CO raises to $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, fold, Hero calls $0.20

      FLOP ($0.95) 3:diamond: 5:club: 6:spade:

      Hero bets $0.70, CO folds, BTN calls $0.70

      TURN ($2.35) 3:diamond: 5:club: 6:spade: T:heart:

      Hero checks, BTN checks

      RIVER ($2.35) 3:diamond: 5:club: 6:spade: T:heart: 3:club:

      Hero bets $0.70, BTN calls $0.70

      BTN 27/16/0.8 38 hands

      On the turn I don't want big pot with this medium hand so just check.

      He checks behind the turn, and I don't want to show the weakness and let him bet the river so I bet myself. Is my blockbet ok?

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      Yeah, your blockbet size is totally fine, and you can get still value from 6x/5x type of hands or even smaller PPs. Nice hand! Sometimes you might even barrel the turn also if we are against a big calling station but going for pot control is totally fine. :)

      Best regards.

      I prefer c/c ... i don't think if something worst than 88 will call you, but i'm sure some OC can try to bluf you.

      edit: veriz was faster :s_biggrin:

      PHG2 - those stations call flop even with overcards. And at the same time I know where I am at with my hand. And I protect against overcards. Also btn may have some connected hand and have straightdraw on flop.
