      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.2 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7, 4.
      MP3 folds, CO calls $0.20, 2 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.5) T, 3, 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, CO calls $0.40.

      Turn: ($1.3) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.90, CO calls $0.90.

      River: ($3.1) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.55, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.1.

      What do you think of my double barrel here? flop bet feels mandatoy, guy is prbably a bit fishy and i like to fire on the ace cause its generally a good scarecard. However at the same time it feels like he as alot of Ax combos so I'm not too sure about the 2nd barrel. At the same time i turn a double gutter too. Any thoughts?

      I think its fine and will help build the pot when you do hit as well as get him to fold many hands/draws when the A flops

      In the case that he has Ax you are still 30% to win

      Board: Tc3c5sAd
      Equity Win Tie
      UTG 30.95% 30.71% 0.24% { 7c4c }
      UTG+1 69.05% 68.82% 0.24% { A2s+, A2o+ }

      Hello RainbowPonny,

      As long you also have a FD+GS and maybe even fold equity I wouldn't mind. Cause if you Check in those spots then I would expect him to Bet anyways most of the time and where you wouldn't be able to continue. Although myself I would balance my bet sizes to like 30 cents & 70 cents which should be enough.

      Best Regards.
