      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.08) Hero has 5:spade: 8:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.13, fold, BB calls $0.08

      could a 3barrel on blank be called for on this board vs this opponent?
      on this board i'm well aware that i have to barrel hard since he could call with a looooot. better not to cbet at all?

      I definitely cbet flop, good draw plus he's likely to fold a lot of his range that beats you/ has some equity. I check behind the turn though, more often than not anything that calls flop is likely to call the turn as a blank 6 changes very little (even though he folded here of course but meh).

      If the river blanks I definitely just give up, obviously betting if a spade comes and folding/checking back otherwise.

      Sample size is much too small to take much away from the stats, well mainly the cbet stats really.

      unless you´re not going to overbet river I would likely just give up. He should fold most of his Jx, Tx hands on the turn and he can´t have too many draws that he is going to c/f river.

      I think turn barreling is fine if you have there good image. You make him fold quite a lot of hands and against Ax you still have 20% equity to hit your hand and get value on the river.

      best regards,
