      0.05/0.10 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with J:diamond: , J:club:
      UTG+1 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.40, CO calls $0.40, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($1.35) 4:diamond: , Q:spade: , 2:heart: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.80, MP3 calls $0.80, CO folds.

      On the flop i made my standard contibet, as the board was not draw heavy

      Turn: ($2.95) 7:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $1.40, Hero calls $1.40.

      I call the bet on the turn because my check might have made him bet a pocket pair or a FD

      River: ($5.75) K:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, MP3 calls $1.50.

      The spade/overcard on the turn complicates things. It is likely I am behind most of the times, and i doubt he would call me with a worse hand so i think the blockbet was a mistake. A queen would gladly check behind on that river.
      Would c/f on the river be a better play?
      Final Pot: $8.75

      Hi Zenith88,

      PF, Flop and Turn are fine.
      But I don't think he'd bet a FD on the turn, since there are no FD on the board. ;)
      But he may bet smaller PP or try to bluff, it's ok to call.

      The river I'd play check/fold against an unknown, there are two overcards there and the board is dry, any worse hands will check behind, so if villain bets he's either on a bluff or he has you, but I don't think you'll be facing a bluff here too often.

      Embarrassing thing about the FD, i think i was looking at wrong hand because i thought there were two spades on the board. I must be tired.

      Don't worry, it happens with everyone, especially when you're tired.
      Just try to not play when you're tired and good luck at the tables. :)

      P.S.: Actually, I should my follow own advice, cause I do play when I'm tired anyway. :D
