      Known players:

      0,01/0,02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A:heart: , A:diamond:
      Hero raises to $0,06, 3 folds, BU calls $0,06, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0,15) T:heart: , 9:heart: , 3:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,1, BU calls $0,10.

      Turn: ($0,35) Q:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,22, BU calls $0,22.

      River: ($0,79) 2:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,16, BU raises to $0,62, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1,11

      Should I just check on the river or place a standard bet? I tried to do something like a block bet to find out if third heart helped the villain, but i'm not sure if this was a good play. and probably i should put a bigger bet on the turn ?

      Hello foolboydesire,

      Nah, I like the block-bet/fold on river for the reason that it gives us the information pretty cheaply where we stand. With Check/Call we might face a big bet and would have hard time Calling it, maybe even had to fold it.

      Best regards.
