      Hello kiromanAAKK,

      Betting for value on turn is very thin, often times I'd even consider just Checking since I rather see him Checking back his draws or something similar. Also when I decide to 2nd barrel the turn then I'd bet ~$0,35. Should do about the same, give us a free showdown and get pretty good value if he has some kind of worse hand. Although for the given reason that the 2nd 7 came then there ain't that many worse hands, only draws and some PPs. Ax is also in his range.

      Best regards.

      But if he is after a draw by check Turn doesn't give him a free card and a possibility to see a card (that maybe may improve his hand) for free?
      Is that too cheap?
      Thx :heart:

      Yes of course, but we are betting against draws and draws only since the 2nd 7 made him unlikely to have a weaker pair also, might only have a weaker PP which he will just fold to your 2nd barrel anyways. Therefore not that many value we can get there, only from draws. Therefore I'd rather not 2nd barrel.

      OK it make sense TY. What if we don't 2nd barrel and he bet on us (maybe with a weak Ace)?
      Thanks

      Depends what kind of bet he will make. I am pretty sure he will do bet there pretty big with some ace since he often might be scared of a draw or something similar. And even from such opponents I wouldn't even be surprised when they just Check behind them. He likely did have the Ace?
