      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with K, A.
      Hero raises to $0.17, UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $0.17, 6 folds, 5 folds, 4 folds, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Turn: ($0.97) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.55, MP1 calls $0.55.

      River: ($2.07) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $0.74, Hero folds, MP1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.07.


      Opp's stats not available since sample size too small.

      Flop: standard cbet.
      I think his range is (JJ-55,22,AhQh,AsQs,KhQh,KsQs,KhJh,KsJs,QhJh,QsJs,KhTh,KsTs,QhTh,QsTs,JhTh,JsTs,99-66,AQo) after calling my cbet on the flop.

      Since most combos will most not fold to a cbet on turn:
      (JJ-55,22,AhQh,AsQs,KhQh,KsQs,KhJh,KsJs,QhJh,QsJs,KhTh,KsTs,QhTh,QsTs,JhTh,JsTs) = 49 combos (will not fold)

      (99-66,AQo) = 13 combos (most prob will fold)

      Therefore, I think firing a 2nd barrel on the turn for semi bluff is a mistake here plus I'm out of position.

      As you said standard cbet I think against some opponents you could even c/f that board. Always depends.

      His range could be even wider. One never knows when facing these kind of players.

      Ye 2nd barrel on the turn is likely just wasted money.

      second barrel is profitable if you also barrel river especially on scare cards like hearts or Jx and higher
      6d is not the best card, so I think folding is fine
