      I like check/call the river on a non heart.

      You are basically putting him on a bluff by betting, because you will fold to a raise. So let him bluff, and call instead.

      I'm putting him on a J or flush, actually, and I think blockbetting is a good way to find out...

      Ahh, I thought when you called the turn, you didn't believe the flush. I read it that he was raising a flush draw there.

      You are basically putting him on a bluff by betting the river, because you only called his turn raise, and now you donk. Better hands and bluffs will raise over your, worse hands will fold. You will fold to a raise, so you make your hand into a bluff.

      FMP.

      This is more or less what I was thinking.

      I didn't think he was that agressive to raise a bluff again on the river, so I would have believed the flush there. But ppl on this limit are easily dumb enough to slowplay and overplay tptk, tpgk and overpair.

      Yeah, I thought because there is showdown value with 2 pair, c/c was my preferred line.

      You`re not blocking anything there. A flush will raise you anyway and a TP kind of hand will call at best . I think with c/c you can often induce a bet from worst hands and get more value in that spot.

      I would c/c river, since:
      - you b/c turn, since you though that he may had better hand or semibluff, why change that assumption at the river?
      If he has missed draw or better hand he would still likely bet river in both cases, he would also valuebet there overpair and sometimes Jx hand.
      Can´t really see why you should donk out yourself if you didn´t want to 3-bet turn and get it all-in.
