      Hello Gonchan,

      Nah, I don't like 2nd barreling there. What worse hand will Call you? Maybe only like J:cJx type of hand and even that kind of hand might still lay down it.

      If the board would be more of a dry board then I might even consider Checking behind be better. But in this case while we have even the back-door FD and maybe even get free showdown with betting the flop should be fine.

      Best regards.
