      villain unknown, less than 10 hands played together
      on flop and turn I bet bigger for protection
      on river, I figured that block betting is useless, because if villain shoves, I have to call it off anyway. I decided to check hoping for a free showdown. When villain shoved, I didn't know where I stand with my top two. Did he have QJs? set? busted flush?
      Decided to call it off.
      Hero on river?
