      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.96 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:diamond: , T:diamond:
      2 folds, BU calls $0,10, SB folds, Hero raises to $0,50, BU calls $0,40.

      Flop: ($1,05) A:diamond: , 7:spade: , 3:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,6, BU calls $0,60.

      Turn: ($2,25) 6:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $1, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2,25

      Was thinking alot during the play. 2nd barrel or not? My reason not to is because the fish doesn't have a full stack to pay me off.

      Hello ragney,

      If you know that he is a fish then why bother to Raise preflop at all? He ain't going to fold to the raise or either it will be also hard to make him fold postflop. Therefore just Check and play in smaller pot, it's also for free. About the play, I'd rather also prefer to fold it on turn, 2nd barreling ain't really profitable against that fish.

      Best regards.
