      The problem is the river: maybe I could have block betted? Say, $0.26 on the river?

      Hello Avatars91,

      From what worse hands do you get called on the river that you want to block-bet?

      Best Regards.

      The main reason I would like to blockbet would be in order to prevent my opponent from bluffing with a draw. Although it might not be a good reason because I'm not sure if he bluffs in that spot. And I can imagine my opponent calling with a weaker 7 or maybe a 6 or a 5 maybe from time to time since the bet is so small.

      Would a block-bet bet a big mistake?

      I would say, since it's just a freeplay pot. You wont get bluffed so often there.
