      Hand1:

      Im pretty unsure if I played this right, I didnt have many hands on him but it indicated that he might be a callingstation.

        Was this bet ok if he was a callingstation?

        Should I have bet or at least called his riverbet here?

      Hero bets $0,25, MP3 raises to $1,00, Hero folds.

        Should I have made a larger bet or called here? But I thought that I could try a blocking bet here since the potential FD hit.

      Final Pot: $2,57

      Hi snowylee!

      If you are sure that he is a calling station I think you played both hands well.

      Hand 1) The turn bet is fine because in the case of a raise by the calling station it's an easy fold. If you bet, the calling station might call you even with nothing. So bet/fold is fine here. On the river appears another overcard so I think check/fold is ok here.

      Hand 2) Nice hand! The blocking bet is fine and against a raise of a calling station you have an easy fold.

      Good luck at the tables!

      Was the size of the blocking bet fine? Or could it be a bit smaller/larger?

      I think $0.25-$0.50 is ok here.
