      This is probably situation without solution. If I would shove preflop he would probably fold and I would have only little profit. But he he flopped full house, I was done.

      Would you fold this hand?

      Hello ramadas,

      Add to full stack.

      Why do you bet so small on the river? Decide right there what you going to do, either shove it or just Check/Fold it.

      Best Regards.

      Small bet on the river: block bet - I felt he could have the nuts, but then I called anyway... :facepalm:

      Why is it 1/30th of the pot though, that's not a block bet, that's barely even a bet? And what are you trying to block a bet from? The only thing he can have on this board is a full house, a flush or a straight, a weaker pair than you or a busted spade draw. With the weaker pair, this bet gets no value, but with everything else you are getting raised/shoved including possibly busted spades but since there's so many hands villain could have its tough to call.

      Four callers is really unlucky, if people are calling preflop raises that light, a raise of 0.12 with AA means you give them incorrect odds to set mine you (not that they'll be noticing this, but it'll mean more money in the pot for you when they don't hit).

      I see where you're coming from though in calling, in NL2 its hard to let go of aces because of the crazy bluffs people will run with absolute air :f_o:

      There is no such a thing as small bet, especially not such a small Bet. Blockbets are usually bigger and in this case there is no point to make even any block-bets.

      Block-bet idea is to fold to further actions which you didn't.
