      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      BTN: $2.37 (23.7 bb)
      SB: $12.78 (127.8 bb)
      BB: $10.15 (101.5 bb)

      MP2: $8.95 (89.5 bb) unknown
      MP3: $9.85 (98.5 bb)
      CO: $15.57 (155.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with A K
      Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.40, 5 folds

      Flop: ($0.95) 9 5 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, MP2 calls $0.60

      Turn: ($2.15) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, MP2 calls $1.50

      River: ($5.15) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $1.50, Hero folds

      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.
