      Titan Poker 0.50/1.00, hand converted by the iPoker Converter at Talking-Poker

      saw flop | saw showdown

      Button ($30.25)
      SB Hero ($50.00)
      BB BB ($55.65)
      UTG ($52.00)
      UTG+1 ($10.00)
      CO ($73.35)

      Preflop: Hero is in the SB with Q:heart: Q:diamond:
      4 folds, Hero raises to 2.00, BB calls 1.50.

      Flop (4.25) K:diamond: 6:spade: Q:spade:
      Hero bets 3.00, BB calls 3.00.

      Turn (10.25) T:diamond:
      Hero bets 7.00, BB calls 7.00.

      River (24.25) 9:spade:
      Hero checks, BB bets 12.00, 1 fold

      No stats on villain (well yeah 26hands.... 3/0/0.5/0)
      River played correctly? Or should I make a blockbet? And if how big :)

      I don't like blocking bets so much and the guy has anyway something if he has a good hand (AK,AK,Jx, KQ,KK,JJ,TT, even the unlikely 99), so I think he's going to show his hand very often; if he bets, he probably has Jx or 2 spades.

      If you don´t think that you´re 25% ahead then fold, I would call, since board is just way good to bluff+ he would make that bet probably with two pair.

      Nonsense: he would be called only by better hands; if he has 2 pairs, he's definetly gonna check the river.

      no he's not if he's a good player, because he is missing a lot of value from weaker two pair and becomes incredibly transparent if he checks the river w/ 2 pair. merging one's range is important here

      i would call if I think the player is capable of bluffing (either with air or two pair)

      I only had 26 hands of him so didn't know if he was capable of bluffing so I decided to fold, which was ok imo

      i think a biger bet on the turn would be better with 2 flush draws there and such a connected board . i check fold against this type of opponent ... i think if he has showdown value with top paiir he checks behind and he will bad just straights or flushes .

      Two pair would hardly ever check behind on that river.
      There is no reason why I should hold flush or straight and then check river, when he could easily check behind and I loose a lot of value.

      I think it's a great spot to block bet

      On the flop and the turn you bet 3/4 pot. Would a pot sized bet to protect your hand be better? Because It is pretty drawy board, and you got to make them pay for cards.
