      Hello Imimba1,

      Rather than showing weakness with turn sizing bet a bit bigger and otherwise seems to be fine to block-bet/Fold the river whilst he still has worse holdings.

      Best Regards.

      Why is it bad to show weakness? It may make him call, when he could fould to a 80% bet.

      Or I just can't give a free card on that flop so cheaply, that's how easy it is?

      Cause he may smell that and raise with his draws or even weak hands. :) We want also of course still to get value from him and if we get raised vs our normal Bet we can safely fold it.
