      Is the 2nd barrel ok? It is difficult for him to have a set or 9x, so I hoped to barrel him off a small / medium pp.
      As played, c/f river is fine despite such tempting odds? Does he ever bluff missed diamonds with this bet sizing?

      Hello member001,

      Kind of close spot either to CB in first place cause I assume those flatting ranges on ZOOM are towards to PPs. But if we consider CBetting here then yeah, I would also 2nd barrel very often to achieve for us a secure card.

      River is rather like a thin value-bet or even bluff-induce-bet, so I'd follow my plan to bet the turn for free showdown.

      Best Regards.
