      I played blockbet/fold river but his raise is so small. Should I have called? I still think it's a fold tho.

      In an unraised pot, it is definitely better to bet the flop with your second pair. You can take it down a lot of times right there, and will get information about how you stand.

      The turn would be much easier to protect if you had already bet the flop, I think. As played it is ok, but if he went over the top after your 3bet you would be in a bad spot.

      River, every 9, A and FD just came home. I think a block bet here will always be raised, or folded to, unless your opponent is a rank calling station. When minraised like this, you are definitely beaten.

      I wouldn't bet the river. Check and let it go mostly. A small bet might be a crying call.

      c/f line is better to take.
      Your blockbet was to small, I´d make it 3$.
      With two pairs you can call, since you´re getting very good pot odds, although fold is also fine.
