      Another suited connector steal spot. I flop botton pair and decide to c-bet it here which I think is standard. He calls.

      Turn is an ace. I figure he can be peeling the flop with a number of pocket pairs and the ace improves my range so decide to turn my hand into a bluff since I'm confident I dont have the best hand at this point. He calls again.

      At this point I'm thinking that he probably has something like A9/A2, or has peeled me on the flop with A high and hit his ace and I am done with the hand.

      River is perfect for me and I size my river bet according to the kind of hands I put him on and he calls it off.

      I'm obviously to surprised to see his hand. Thats the kind of hand I want him to fold to my turn bet! Obviously I put a note on him.

      Just wondering if my thought process for the hand is okay. Are we better to fire the second barrel on non A broadway cards?

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Very good card for 2nd barrel. Although definitely note him down that he is capable of calling you down loose.

      On non-broadways I wouldn't really consider 2nd barreling.

      Best regards.
