      What is better on the turn? B/f or c/c? I think I cannot c/f on the turn because of possibility of flush draw and I might still have the best hand (therefore I should withstand at least one bet and reevaluate the river).

      Should I have blockbet the river or c/f is right because of busted flush draw? However, I cannot call pot size bet.

      Its better to bet flop bigger and turn smaller.
      Im taking the b/f line on turn almost always, and you are right of not being able to c/f.
      As played, I'd make a blockbet as the board is double paired and even a Q has a hard time calling. On a more raggy board(still with the FD) vs aggressive opponent,I'm c/c even potsize.

      Best regards,

      It is hard to call on the river even if there might be busted flush draws. But If he has a piece of the flop (any 2, 8, Q), he beats me.
