      Hi,

      yes, it is perfectly fine bet out likely with the best hand. Just balance out betting there also with draws, sets and sometimes air.

      If someone calls, what do we plan to do on the turn? 2nd barrel on any card?

      Hi,

      I think checking is mostly better option. Not saying we should c/f, but if we continue barreling at any cards we likely get called only by better hands. Also it depends if Co or MP1 calls. MP1 range should be tighter than CO, so I may consider c/f or c/c once against MP1, but may easily c/c down against CO.

      best regards,
