      You didnt tell us any stats of your opponents.
      whats hes vpip/pfr, fcbet etc...

      I cant see anyonre calling 2nd barrel with worst than a Q , which beats us.
      Hes play smells like TP hand which wants to extract value, or Q with weaker kicker(Q9-QJ).
      FD and lower pairs might call cbet, but I doubt they are calling 2nd barrel.
      So if hes agressive and might expliot your weakness of checking, I would of bet 1/2 psb as a blocker , so we get free sd on river.
      If not, than ckeck and fold is probly best move.

      Interested what Veriz might say.

      Hello MattDenness,

      Mainly depends on the opponent but if he is a thinking player he wont Call us with a lot worse anyways. Depends what's his SB calling range there as well. But it's possible to 2nd barrel if you expect him to have a lot worse range there what includes draws, PPs etc float. Cause our idea of betting the turn is for protection and free showdown. Would be hard vs aggressive opponent to Call the river if he leads.

      Best Regards.
