      SB ($10.82)
      BB ($11.23)
      Hero ($10.26)
      CO ($10)
      BTN ($11.60)

      Dealt to Hero 6:spade: 6:diamond:

      Hero raises to $0.30, fold, BTN calls $0.30, fold, fold

      FLOP ($0.75) 8:spade: 2:heart: 8:heart:

      Hero bets $0.56, BTN calls $0.56

      TURN ($1.87) 8:spade: 2:heart: 8:heart: 7:diamond:

      Hero bets $1.40, BTN calls $1.40

      RIVER ($4.67) 8:spade: 2:heart: 8:heart: 7:diamond: A:diamond:

      Hero bets $1.70, BTN folds

      Is my play ok here? against an unknown. I bet turn and flop for value against overs and draws.

      I feel i have to bet the river as a block bet otherwise i feel i get bluffed off by basically any 2.

      Is my sizing and thought process ok here? i also might get called by worse, 55s or 44s

      Hello Wacko118,

      Well, seems kinda fine. Sometimes you might even make a better hand to fold there. But that's true that you will rarely get called from 55/44 here while the opponent really has to be a huge station.

      Another thing good in this is that you are block-betting it and wont let him bet too big and give you hard time to herocall it vs missed draws. Although meanwhile A:hX is possible. :(

      Best Regards.
