      I think you played it well there is no need to build the pot there as he will probably call with top pair or 2 pair and the 7 is completing a oesd if he had that.

      So if you decide to barrel turn you have to be ready to barrel river as well and i think that is just overplaying and it is better to give up on turn and go for a check behind. (saying that because i often level myself into 3 barreling thinking that he "has to" fold anything that is not str8 but that is just wrong at theese stakes)

      Hello juhiimi,

      Preflop of course a lot of PPs/broadways so which practically ain't gonna fold on turn. Might even did hit a straight or whatsoever. So your play is totally fine I'd say and I wouldn't change much. Just don't take it too seriously about have to fold it on turn.

      But of course there is a small tip that don't take this as a habit play to just CBet the flop and not 2nd barreling. There will be still a lot of spots where you should consider 2nd barreling. But this ain't a board for that.

      Best regards.
