      CO: $10 (100 bb)
      BTN: $14.25 (142.5 bb)
      Hero (SB): $11.76 (117.6 bb) 17/10/0.8/0.0/36/129
      BB: $9.83 (98.3 bb) 46/13/1.8/1.2/29/264
      MP: $5.05 (50.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J Q
      MP calls $0.10, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, BB calls $0.30, MP folds

      Flop: ($0.90) Q T 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.55, BB calls $0.55

      Turn: ($2) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.24, BB calls $1.24

      River: ($4.48) 2 (2 players)

      Decided to blockbet here since the flush draw completed. So my plan here was to Bet/Fold.

      I would bet it bigger on the flop and turn. You can get more value there from draws, weaker Qx and Tx given how fishy the player is.

      On the river - do you expect him to bluff you here too often? I might just check/fold it in this spot cause I doubt you're getting many better hands to fold with a bet of that size (he still calls with all his better Qx), and I also doubt many worse hands will call when the flush completes.

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Bet bigger on the flop & turn to protect your hand. But otherwise well, you even turned your hand into bluff on the river. :D I would just Check/Fold there as long the draw also completes.

      Best Regards.

      I have noticed that usually when a draw completes on the river you recommend a check/fold. If I check/fold everytime a draw completes won't the opponent start exploiting that and bluff me off everytime I play check/fold?

      Well, worse hands would just Check behind there and at the same time you ain't getting called from worse. ;) Plus I rarely expect those opponents on those stakes exploit you. :D
