Default 50NL Good use of blocking bet?

No reads on villain IIRC. I didn't want to get blown off what may be the best hand on the river, but at the same time this just felt wrong... comments?

Poker Stars, $0.25/$0.50 NL Hold'em Cash Game, 4 Players

UTG: $56.60

BB: $15.05

Pre-Flop: 7[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] 8[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] dealt to Hero (SB)

I think the turn bet is marginal and the river bet is definitely marginal. I would rather c/c a turn bet as I doubt anything he calls flop with he is folding on the turn except overs. If it is overs, I would rather let him bluff into me than me push him off them. I am just c/f-ing river.

this seems like much too thin of a value bet, and is turning into a bluff. i agree wit profish, c/f

meh I prob prefer c/c or c/f here he isnt really calling with worse so this is more a bluff than anything else.

his range is mostly missed draws IMO so c/c might be goot if he is agro. but even that is pretty thin.

wow TT i forget how passive people play sometimes lol

C/F river.You are never ahead here and I doubt he calls with a 6
On the TURN I sometimes C/C and sometimes lead .Not sure what is the best line.

OOP sucks, doesn't it?

There's not too many instances in which you get to the river here and you're not behind if the straight card doesn't fall. C/F.

my 2 cents - your blocking bet is still too small. I think a lot of players will read that as either a blocking bet or just weakness and raise you with any 2 cards. At which point you have to fold.

I think a blocking bet still has to be around 1/2 pot.
