      Second barrel the turn since the opponent just check/called flop and you will know if he has the 5 if he re raises.

      Basically bet the turn and fold to shove, on river a call is fine imo, since he can have AJ

      hmm nooooooo

      a second barrel is very bad here, the goal is not to know if has a 5 or not !. If we second barrel it is in order to fold better hands than ours (its obviously not for value) but villain is never folding a pair(flopped or pocket), obv not folding a 5. We might fold Ahigh only

      on the river the hand that worries me the less is AJ tbh.
      his psb is weird, and I would never raise it because I don't see any value: he is only calling with trips or a fh, and he is folding all his bluffs. The real question would be: do you call ? This has to be read-dependent: does he slowplay monsters and pots them on the river or does he bluff often in that spot ?

      I think you played that fine.
      Since SB called flop then he´d probably call you down with any pair.
      River call is fine, since you might be behind to 5x or boat.
