      initial raiser is very loose.

      i bet POT on flop for protection and value and i am ready to fold if the next cards are not blank. when i get two callers i thought maybe someones holding a better hand, set or straight so i bet half the pot to see if i am against someone whos chasing or a made hand

      with the fish on a blank river i do a block/value bet thinking that if he shoves im in a tough spot but hoping he will just bluff.

      i would like opinions on bet sizes please and does the river give away weakness?
      thoughts?
