      Hello DrDunne,

      Kinda, cause he is capable of floating you even maybe with weaker hands and of course a lot of PPs. So if we CB then we might want to 2nd barrel it as well to get rid of floats.

      Best Regards.

      okay. so from what i gather 2nd barrels are good on scare cards like a K or A (although i guess there are more Ax hands in people's ranges), but why 2nd barrel here? i don't understand what criteria?

      if i 2nd barrel and he is on a FD, he probably won't fold, nor if he hit some random 5x hand, or some 67h or even just a Qx hand. i don't understand when is a good time to 2nd barrel but i know im being floated so much since switching to SH.

      Because the guy may float you with draws/PPs which are going to fold it to 2nd barrel. Just CBetting and hoping that he folds is not gonna work out, especially if he is loose.
