      First off, I'm not much of a Hold'em player, but it seems to me that your river bet is too small.
      I believe in "bet like you mean it"

      The questions are:
      :diamond:   What worse will call?
      :diamond:   What better can fold?

      I'm curious to see what others have to say...
      VS

      If worse (like :Ax: :Tx: ) can call, bet.
      Few better hands will fold (at least I don't think so).

      As played, I think the fold is fine -- had you bet half pot

      Thanks for the response. I actually posted this in the wrong section, mind moving it into the hand discussions? Haha sorry!

      As to the hand, i bet small on the river because even Qx would have a hard time calling a triple into 2 opponents, and i don't wana value town myself incase someone binks.

      i think BB only beats us with QT. And if CO is a fish you definitely have 3 streets of value. Depends on how big of a fish he is though, and whether your small bet size induced a bluff. I kind of like the idea but when you blockbet you must decide whether to bet/fold or bet/call.

      I think it's possible for the fish to double call you with TT/45/sets. Would probably bet slightly larger, around 2.20, doesnt look so large still but doesnt scream weakness at the same time asking to get raised. Then when you do get raised it would be a much easier fold.

      Yeah, i mean obviously it could be a bluff but BBs in the pot which I'm hoping he would take into account; deterring him from spaz-bluffing us.

      "I kind of like the idea but when you blockbet you must decide whether to bet/fold or bet/call"
      Wasn't purely a block bet more just the max EV line i could think of, and I'm never calling a raise here.

      I think that we should fold vs the river raise. It is done vs 2 opponents and it seems very strong.
