      Villain was 13/6/5.5 over 70 hands.

      Obviously the flop call worried me alot. I thought he either had some kinda of suited connector (called with FD, OESD, or actually hit the 8 or 9), or 99 or 88.
      I really thought I should try to keep the pot small and was gonna check, but I realised that my hand looks so weak if I do and so many worse hands might bluff me off my hand. The turn bet I made pretty much commited me, although I was pretty sure I was beat at that point.

      What the hell line do you take here?

      I thought even for C/C turn, the pot is already big, and I'm probly going to commit most of my stack anyway. And I wouldn't know what to do on river.

      C/F seems really weak - maybe the best thing OOP though.

      And value betting pretty much commits me.

      Is this a good spot to make a ~4$ block bet and fold to raise?

      44 is too weak, you´re giving him odds to call for flushdraw and it could induce bluffs.
      I would c/c turn, c/f river.
      He won´t bet twice with nothing or worse hands than TT.
      And you´re keeping the pot small.
      Bet/fold turn is also and option, but very expensive and wrong when he is making move with flushdraw.
