      Not really! You are playing against a very loose fish who is not even full stacked. He doesn't fold anything so barreling is -EV here. He will float stuff like midpairs and flushdraws way to often. Apart from that, any card can improve his range while you only have 8 outs out of which 2 are tainted.

      Short story: no FE + small pot equity = no barreling.

      Hello Shady9966,

      Not against such a station. If you had something like SD+FD then sure why not, but with just SD you will rarely do in long run profitable such a play. Just Check the turn and most likely give it up.

      As played you can even consider betting the river bigger ~$3,50 at least. :)

      Best Regards.
