      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:spade: , Q:diamond:
      UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $0.05, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, BB folds, MP1 calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.55) K:heart: , 9:spade: , 3:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.35, MP1 calls $0.35.

      Turn: ($1.25) J:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.7, MP1 raises to $1.45, Hero folds, MP1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.65

      I think preflop and flop are standard. Should I barrel the turn? At least I now have a gutshot.

      Hello member001,

      He has still a lot GS/smaller PPs in his range as well so therefore I don't mind even the 2nd barrel there. He ain't going to showdown that often either. But basically you can even consider Checking while he is that passive but the problem with Check is that we gonna go for Check/Fold then. So basically if you still wanting to continue then rather 2nd barrel.

      Best regards.
