      Stats: 62/8 in 13 hands

      I 2nd barrel because I think he may fold Qx because of the A on the flop, and he may also have some gutshots and gutshot + FD. Besides I have a FD, so still probably have 11 outs.

      Hello Tosh5457,

      Well, I doubt that a station would even fold Qx. :D Although your thoughts are correct. But the only reason why I would rather consider just Checking here is that even a draw completed. Plus of course Ax is in his range as well. Those stations are passive anyways and he wouldn't bet the turn without having a strong hand.

      Usually I don't try to overplay those stations while we can't be sure what we are able to make them to fold. Rather save the money. :)

      Best regards.
