      BTN: $10.10 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 15, 3B: 6, AF: 1,5, Hands: 53
      SB: $4.00 - VPIP: 13, PFR: 11, 3B: 18, AF: 0,5, Hands: 38
      BB: $7.18 - VPIP: 33, PFR: 9, 3B: 0, AF: 4,0, Hands: 43
      Hero (UTG): $10.85 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,4, Hands: 45642
      CO: $10.85 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 18, 3B: 10, AF: 0,0, Hands: 67

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with 6 :heart: 6 :club:
      Hero raises to $0.40, 1 fold, BTN calls $0.40, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.95) 2 :spade: 3 :spade: 7 :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, BTN calls $0.60

      Turn: ($2.15) 5 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, BTN calls $1.50

      River: ($5.15) K :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      I am very much unsure about this 2nd barrel. Since I decided to cBet such a flop I am supposed to cBet again on the turn (in the context of the 257r Tx type of board that you suggested 2nd-barreling), right? Or is this board a bit different so that 2-nd barreling no longer is a good option? I just thought that having a GS there helps, just like being able to represent a stronger overall range since I openraise from UTG.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Most likely I would just Check/Fold the turn cause FD also gets there, I can't see that many worse hands paying you anyways there. Of course there are some combos of Ax hands but he seems to be rather passive so could easily Check it behind.

      Best Regards.

      Had the turn not been a spade, would 2nd barreling be an option? I guess not really, but still wanted to be sure.

      Why not?

      Since not that many worse hands are paying me off and most FDs have quite a lot of equity against me anyway (maybe villain folds FDs against a 2nd barrel though), I thought that 2nd barreling does not really achieve much apart frm maybe folding out some random weaker floats. But, as you said, he might even just check behind his Ax kind of hands since he could be passive.

      Although then I look at the board and notice that the flop is a low card flop so I should actually be quite inclined to fire a lot of turns, right? Since villain might float a lot on this board?

      But why would you want to lay down maybe even the best hand? :D Check behind I mainly meant cause the FD completed.
