      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      UTG2:
      $11,3
      Hero:
      $32,8
      BU:
      $25,7

      0,15/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:heart: , K:diamond:
      UTG2 calls $0,25, 3 folds, Hero raises to $1,00, BU calls $1,00, 2 folds, UTG2 calls $0,75.

      Flop: ($3,40) 9:heart: , 5:heart: , 4:diamond: (3 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero checks, BU checks.

      No reason to cbet this flop against 2 loose opponents.

      Turn: ($3,40) K:spade: (3 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $3, BU calls $3,00, UTG2 folds.

      River: ($9,40) 6:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $3, BU raises to $18,40, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      This should be a typical situation for a Blockbet which can get calls from weaker hands -> +EV and if i get raised i know i'm beat.
      The BU has a high AF on R (4) but the raise was to big and it should be a good fold. Such high raises often means either a pure bluff or a very strong hand (flush/str) from a 67/39 player and i didn't want to go for stacks
      Is this blockbet in such situations a good line?

      Final Pot: $15,40

      Hello chocular77,

      Don't like to make a big bet on turn that much. I'd rather make it ~$2,60 or something similar. To give him room for some hero-call with weaker pairs/PPs.

      As played nothing much you can do there, Bet/Fold it while a lot of draws even completed. Check/Folding might be still a bit too weak while he may easily even have himself weaker Kx/pairs/PPs.

      Best regards.

      I find that I geta lot of raises from aggressive fishes when blockbetting. I'd bet 1/2 pot, he'd probably bet with FD on the flop anyway.
