      What do you think about this play ? Especially the river bet - it was ment to somewhat blockbet but now I realize that I am commiting myself to the pot. Every Q has me beat and busted FDs ain´t gonna call me down. Am I just isolating myself against better hands here ? Should I play check/fold ??
      Maybe he could call somewhat 2pair ?

      Hello acceleration123,

      I don't think that there are many worse hands which will Call you there anyways. Therefore rather just Check and take a look at his bet or something similar and then decide what kind of actions I am going to take.

      Best regards.

      It will come with time and experience, although I guess there should be even videos about the block-bets and as well articles. Try searching around in PokerStrategy. :)
