      My opponent is a multitabler with the following stats: VP/PFR/AF/3bet/hands 17/11/1.0/5.6/152

      I had a loose image at the time.

      The question is: is my turn+river line better than a 2nd barrel + 1/3rd rvr bet or something like that?

      My thought process: when he calls it is either a float, a J or a midpair. If I 2nd barrel, he folds his floats and midpairs, maybe even a J. If I check, I give him the option of bluffing me or going for thin value with a J. He checks behind so I think he is trying to get to a cheap showdown and has either a J or a midpair. I bet because I think he's capable of calling a J, maybe even a midpair since I checked the turn.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Usually in those spots I really rather like to Bet the turn as well and might even protect our hand. He is definitely capable of calling with worse hands there. So I'd Bet the turn and most likely 1/2 pot size on the river even.

      Best Regards.
