      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:spade: , K:spade:
      3 folds, CO calls $0,02, BU folds, Hero raises to $0,10, BB folds, CO calls $0,08.

      Hero bets $0,14, CO calls $0,14.

      Turn: ($0,50) 8:heart: (2 players)
      Hero ???

      actually this is more of a question in general, not just for this particular hand - when can i fire second barrell as a bluff ? for example, if i put my opponent here on low pocket pair or suited connectors (56, 67), is it worth to fire another bet on the turn? what do i need for it to be profitable in the long run? :)

      Hello foolboydesire,

      On such a board and against such a opponent who does Call a lot of flop CBets, there is two options, either you 2barrel or don't barrel at all. Therefore I guess I'd go for 2nd barrel here or just Check/Fold it right on flop. They just wont fold their overcards on flop and might just bet the turn and take it down and that may become a leak.

      Best regards.
