      Whyd you escalate on the river?

      Blockbet-fold river. 1.50 is fine for that.

      Fell in love with my preflop holding i guess :( , only thing i can really beat there is QJ basically, KJ but seems unlikely me holding 2 K's. So yeah, typical.... Since this guy is so passive, I don't think he would ever bluff me here, my shove looks so ridiculous now..

      Agreed, he'll call with Jx probably. If you don't think he will then it's a check/fold, and even tho he shouldn't have many hands to bluff with except maybe KQ, if you're going to put him on a bluff when he shoves over your blockbet and call it off, you're better off widening his bluffing range by check/calling instead.


      Hope it helps.
