      I raise 4bb UTG this was a missclick.
      Opponent is a fish/limper/callin station although i have only 25 hands.AF so far is 1.6
      1)preflop/flop/turn ok ?
      2)Bet sizes ?
      3)Should i block bet this river sth like 0.5 and fold to a raise ? maybe this would save me some $$$.
      4)With this bet size i should fold ?

      Please check my question here if you can .

      Thanks !

      Hi Enterg,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: 3-way against at least one weak opponent (shorter stack MP and shorter stack SB) we can even pot it.

      As played the big turn bet is good and on the river we either bet/fold, ck/call small bet or ck/fold depending on the villain. I'm assuming we don't know anything about the opponent and thus I'd prefer to bet/fold small to still get value from pairs and random Kx.

      As a side note, it appears that I missed your reply to the other hand because the "advise judge to take another look" button was not pressed (after you replied. For future reference, if you could please hit the above mentioned button and then we won't miss the replies (the hand turns from evaluated to a big ! so we can all see it).

      It's a close one as we get 20% pot odds.

      So we need him betting worse 20% of the time.

      I can't really see him bluffing the river except if he had some missed diamond draws so he would need to bet worse for value like 8x, TT. Since he is fishy he may bet small like that with a weaker hand so I think we can call. It won't be the most profitable call but it only needs to work 1 in 5 times.

      This is an example of the type of spot we want to avoid: a guessing spot.
