      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J, J.
      MP2 calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.50, CO calls $0.50, 3 folds, MP2 calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.65) 8, 8, K (3 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $1.00, CO calls $1.00, MP2 folds.

      Turn: ($3.65) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks.

      River: ($3.65) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.00, CO raises to $3.48, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $4.65.

      Stats: 53/35/0.3/29, fold to cbet = 63%, in 41 hands

      Flop: When he calls I put him on Kx, PP, Ax, 8x.

      Turn: I went for c/f because he's very passive.

      River: Just a blockbet, I think I may be ahead. But maybe this blockbet made him raise bluff...

      How would you have played?

      Hello Tosh5457,

      Well, the problem is that even on river it's pretty thin value. Of course it's considerable vs his range. But more often I'd rather take a free showdown and Check it. Which means if we face rather stronger bet then I'd even consider Check/Folding. I doubt that he would turn any A high hand into bluff while he rather seems to be loose-passive guy.

      The same goes for any kind of PPs which would most likely just Check behind and not bet for value. But of course as you block-bet there is nothing much you can do against his raise. Most likely was trapping you.

      Best regards.
