      PF: decide to iso fish with 89s IP

      Flop: cbet for value, he`s calling here with a lot of overcards

      Turn: not the greatest of cards complets some straights but i have two pair and i beat any TT+ type of hands that he is slowplaying.So i bet again for value.

      River: i think i wasn't really paying attention to stack sizes here, i would have definitely bet less... and think about folding.Because i had so little behind i decided to call in case he is missplaying a AKs,AQs etc.

      I though he would raise on flop or at least on turn with a strong hand like a set or straight because the board is so drawheavy.

      Questions: 1)You think it was ok to go for value on flop and turn?
      2)What do you think about going for max value on river.

      Hello cozacu,

      Guess we could still Bet the turn, though I don't see any reason to Bet the river this amount, I'd Bet max there like $2 and then even plan to fold instead Calling. If I'd plan to call in those spots then what's the purpose of the block-bet? Then instead make a bigger Bet for value.

      Best Regards.
