      Not played for a few days so fairly rusty. Should I 2nd barrel here? I feel like by checking he will always check back his draws (information) and bet his made hands. I could easily just double barrel and give it up on any river? check-folding the turn seems too weak.

      You just called preflop and play vs 2 player OOP. I think that there is no way i bet this flop.

      Preflop i would also considering a sqeez here to 1$ and probably force CO and BTN to fold. We still then have a quite high fold equity if we cBet.

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Preflop: Either way is actually fine. If you want to Call and play vs both players or just squeezing. Both work.

      As played
      Postflop: Although I guess I wouldn't really donk it here with just mid-pair. :) Most likely I'd just give it up. Of course we do have the mid-pair but we don't have any add-on equity there, only some kind of GS.

      Best Regards.
