      Hello BGawli,

      The problem on turn is that of course you have a re-draw there. But not many hands are going to fold on turn while the 9x completed several holdings. Like 89,JT and so on.

      So therefore I might even prefer just Checking while he I expect anyways him to Check behind those draw-type of holdings. Plus we could as well of course even get raised here while just investing money into the pot.

      Although if you consider him being rather a passive opponent then 2nd barreling is an option to secure us a card. Maybe even some fold equity against some worse draws.

      Best regards.
