i think i'd have to put a blocker in on river..150-200 chips.

He's more likely to call that (if either behind or ahead) rather than reraising. If he does come over the
top...folding is looking more likely than calling. He looks like he drawing to a flush/straight doesnt he.
Other possibilities though.

Yeah, make an ambiguous bet and hope he folds or calls.

The problem with such a small bet is that it just looks so weak - so yes, he will obviously raise if he has me beat, he will also clearly raise if he senses the weakness in me.  I say this because it's the exact same play I would make in this situation.  Rather, I felt I should simply check it to him - if he has the flush, it forces him to figure out how many chips I'm willing to put in (if anything, this will lower the chips I stand to lose) - if he doesn't, it gives him a chance to take a stab - and any reasonable bet I'd be willing to call.  Here's what he did:

*** RIVER *** [9c 8c 2d 3c] [Kc]
k06mars checks
Andrew JF bets 400
k06mars calls 400
*** SHOW DOWN ***

Okay..so what does villain have?
