This week Bart takes a look at some special situations where block betting the river from up front may be the correct play and breaks down a super thin value bet he recently made demonstrating the importance of proper flush hand reading on 4 flush runouts.

FLOP: Ad 7d 6s -Bart bets $100, call. $390
TURN: Qd x/x $390
RIVER: Td Bart bets $200.. could the alternative be a block to induce a raise if the Kd is rarely possible in our opponents' hand?
