      River block bet made sense? I thought KQ or QJ would call.

      Never block/bet the River without a clear plan. I think it's pretty obvious that you do not have a flush when you bet so small, and anyone aggro would just raise the River and try to push you off your hand. For example if I had JJ/Q6s I would just turn my hand into a bluff now and push you off KQ/AQ.

      This guy seems aggro so blockbet/fold is definitely the worst option on the river by far. If he's loose and doesn't like folding I would just bet River for value anyway. Don't forget this is BvB. But if he is tight then just check and probably check/fold if he doesn't turn made hands into bluffs. But if he turns made hands into bluffs then check/call.
