Do it just like this:

Allow Adsense bot to get it and block Googlebot

User-Agent: *
Disallow: /folder1/

User-Agent: MediaPartners-Google
Allow: /folder1/

Just curious why you would want to block googlebot? Wouldn't you also be blocking google from spidering that page to give you better paying and more relevant ads? or blocking your chances at a page rank which in theory helps your adsense?
