Default Re: Basic theory on river betting question

Should I bet out half the pot or maybe 1/3 of the pot to prevent him potting it? Is this known as a "blocking bet"?

Against weak opposition blocking bets can be good. Strong players recognize these bets to be easy bluffing opportunites, which is why very strong opponents occasionally make similairly small bets on the river with the nuts.
