      I'm not sure about river... All the time I felt that my kicker in this example is to weak against this player. Was it worth to blocking bet on the river or x/f directly would be better option? seriously I don't see worse hands in his range when cold call is just 7%

      Hello BGawli,

      Do you think he is capable of calling there with FD like A:hX? And could he have such hands in his range? If you think so then block-betting could be an option but otherwise there wont be many worse hands which pay you on the river anyways.

      With the equity of sausage646 we could still Bet on the river cause with his equity we still get value from worse, we would need only 19%. :)

      Best Regards.
