      Hero bets $0.4, MP2 raises to $1.03 (All-In), Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $2.86

      Preflop i was OOP, and there were many limpers so i raised big. On the flop, i have an overpair so i cbet. I don't have much of a sample of MP2, so i can't really know his range. But he limp/called, so probably some kind of pocket pair, suited connector or broadway.

      On the turn i improve to trips but Qs also completes a flush draw. I bet for value and for protection from 1 card flush.

      On the river comes worst card ever. It's 4th spade, and ace also completes possible straight draw. I placed a block bet and MP2 pushed AI. I can't see any worse hand that would do that. Any two pairs, or sets would just call. So i fold, even if i need only 15% equity...

      Hello staktas,

      I am not a big fan of block-betting the river. The problem is that I don't see worse hands calling that easily and either he wont bet with a lot worse hands. So rather just Check/Fold it and don't donate any more money into the pot.

      Best regards.
