      Notes on Villain (also can be seen from his stats):
      - calls a lot from the blinds
      - ch/calls flop, and sometimes even turn light (f.e. Ace high + gutshot)
      - after peeling light, seen river bluffs from him:
      - ch/call flop, ch/ch turn, bluffbet river (oop float)
      - ch/call flop, ch/call turn, bluff chRAI river


      Preflop/flop standard, but how would you play on the turn against this Villain? Some pro/contra on 2nd barreling:
      - 9 is a bad turn card for barreling --> checkbehind
      - Villain's range is weak on the turn, plus I have equity --> barrel
      - Villain is capable of check/calling a lot of better hands (any pair, even better Ace highs) --> checkbehind

      What do you think?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      With such reads I guess it's going to be tough to fold, especially if you have seen him bluffing the river so often. He still has also some missed draws in his range and it's even good card for him to try to bluff.

      Best Regards.

      Yeah, the river call wasnt easy, because practically we only beat a bluff.
      Given what we know about him would you 2nd barrel this turn?

      Well, he also knows that you can't represent much and as you said he is even capable of Betting the river again even with bluff, so do we want to build up the pot while we have decent equity and can even turn hand into bluff.

      But that's true that usually vs those agro floaters we want to 2nd barrel in those spots to avoid them betting with total air the river.
