      Is there value in block-betting the river? I think only hand I could extract value from is KQ...

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      River: ($1.07) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.38, MP2 raises to $1.08, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.45.

      Hello redwarf01,

      Yeah, the idea of betting the river is mostly for block-bet/Fold only. We can't get much value there anyways. Although I guess I'd bet myself for ~1/2 pot size and fold to the raise.

      Best regards.
