      Flop and turn are ok to bet for value, but c/calling river is a huuuuge leak :( .

      When he bets here he generally has a polarized range because something like QJ and probably even AQ is too afraid to valuebet.
      But at the same time he is very unlikely to be bluffing because it's 3way and he can't expect to have foldequity.
      So we're beaten close to 100% of the time.

      Therefore we can either bet the river or c/f.
      I much prefer a blockbet of $6 because nobody will try to bluff us in this spot so we can get some thin value vs Qx type hands and potentially 87.
