      I was card dead for a while so i thought i try to keep my image at table as aggresive player and raised with KJo preflop. And on flop i hit OESD so i tried to inflate pot a little bit. But ended up missing my straight, so should i bet the river as block bet is it profitable in such situation?

      Hello Jaccuzzi,

      The bet sizing on turn is pretty horrible. You might even easily induce yourself to raise. So therefore if you even want to 2nd barrel then do it properly.

      As played why do you even bet the river? No worse will fold anyways against such a bet size. Never-ever.

      Best regards.

      to be honest i tried to do something like a block bet (to bet to see where i stand) but i think i need to read theory another time because i don't know how to put it to practice. That time it looked good choice but now that i think i should done it if i had like Tx.

      Block-betting is usually on river. :) When you just avoid the opponent to make huge bluffs or anything similar. But not where you on turn practically just telling that you have a weak hand or a draw. :(
