      UTG: $13.72 (137.2 bb)
      MP: $11.56 (115.6 bb)
      CO: $10.27 (102.7 bb)
      BTN: $8.04 (80.4 bb)
      Hero (SB): $10.35 (103.5 bb) 37/27/4.0/0.0/0/12
      BB: $11.67 (116.7 bb) 21/16/2.6/4.8/24/251 Fold to Flop C-Bet 60%(5)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 5 A
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, BB calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.80) K 3 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, BB calls $0.50

      Pretty dry board plus he has a decent fold to C-Bet stat so I C-Bet to take it down.

      Turn: ($1.80) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.20, BB folds

      Once he calls the flop C-Bet should I C-Bet this turn again? I don't have his fold to C-Bet turn stat. If he called with a Kx on the flop then he'll call again, if he called with other hands or pairs or floats then he'll be forced to fold. Kx should be a small part of the range he calls especially when there are 2 on the board so I go ahead and C-Bet again to 2/3 pot size signalling that I'm making a value bet.

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Depends a lot on the opponent we are against cause the K also makes our hand less likely to have a Kx type of hand. So might even not be the best spot to 2nd barrel, though a lot of other cards I'd plan to barrel.

      Best Regards.
