      I was trying out the blocker bet on the river which didnt work here. Could someone elaborate if a blocker bet is suitable in this spot and if so was the bet sizing correct for the blocker bet. What general guidelines are used for making a blocker bet in terms of pot size to bet size and opponents stack.

      fold pre flop, I dont like the defend there in sb with Q8o, I much rather squeeze or fold. You are out of position with a real marginal hand with lot of reverse implied odds, even on Q high flops u can never be sure if u r good and if pot gets big than u r generally behind, by calling here u r def getting urself in some bad spots post flop, so just fold pre. A sign of good player is folding his sb a lot, calling here with Q8o multiway in sb just terrible terrible.
      FLop lead is fine, though u can check call too to pot control. Whats the plan if he raised ur flop bet?
      I like turn check call, by checking u keep the pot small and can definitely induce bluffs from him since he cud try and rep a King.
      River-I am not a fan of block bets and hardly ever make them, its prob best to check/call than bet/call, I wud cehck and decide depending on his sizing, getting to river his range is pretty narrow since he is never value betting anything worse than a King pair and checking back all his other one pair hands, so when he bets river if u dont put him on a King its an easy call.

      Well Adi to be honest i didnt have a plan if he raised my flop bet. This tourney was played when in Oct 10 and i had learnt holdem in Oct 09 in AIM Dorm from Rajat. Was not sure what i was doing. Since i lost a bit of $$ on the blinds in Cash games i was reviewing my play from the blinds in MTT and cash and hence posted this hand. Looked marginal to me and i was telling myself that as the chip lead on the final table you would make these plays. But in this hand probably i was calling 2 much with just a pair of 8.

      Well the history with this guy helped but i guess i took it too far.

      would you squeeze here on the SB with a raise and call as the chip lead.
