      Hi,

      I think you don´t want to play for stacks. He would usually also give up on blank turns or even if he barrels you can call with any turn card. I would call there and bet if he checks to me on the turn

      if he 2nd barrel on 8d or Ac, what would be the best plan?
      - call- you have showdown value, he is bluffing enough times and I don´t think you need to turn your hand into bluff by raising his turn bet.

      best regards,

      dunt u think he's going to bet every river except hearts?as my top range is KQ and cant really call a river bet on A turn
      so the call seems just to hope that he wouldnt bet river?

      Hi,

      - most players would barrel turn and then give up, since your floating range also includes Ax hands and if you´re going to call turn then you may easily call river- so if he has air, I think he is giving up if he is betting on A turn

      as my top range is KQ and cant really call a river bet on A turn

      - your range may easily be AQ (if you don´t decide to raise on the turn) or made flushes or just Ax hands that floated on the flop. Mostly they would not fire 3 barrels if they bet turn trying to represent Ax.
