      Was I chasing/betting too much?

      Hello WSOPoker90,

      Everything seems to be fine, although I would raise myself on river smallish. While he is fishy then we might still get value even from worse and seems that he tries to block-bet with some weak hand which has some showdown value.

      Best regards.
