      How to play river?
      Is it a bet fold? Maybe block bet/fold?

      Hello StraGus,

      While it's a freeplay pot and against his stack I guess I'd just pick the Check/Fold line there. He may easily put us into difficult spot when we even Bet and he ships. Doubt that he would even bet with a lot worse either here. Rather just skip it. But of course if you consider him still capable of paying with some Tx crap hands then ~$0,30 as block-bet should be enough.

      Best Regards.
