      I would preffer a bigger cbet on such drawy flop. The turn is very thin and I think you could ch/f already here. I think that by barreling turn, it will be super hard to play on any river. What was you plan on a complete blank river?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Turn card is pretty bad for us, whilst now he could have a lot of hands which have us beat as straight/2pairs etc. Though I wouldn't say that 2nd barreling is wrong cause you may still block-bet it vs Jx/FDs there as well but then the main plan would be to do it for a free showdown on the river. Another option to Check/Fold it based on the opponent but Checking makes our hand pretty much faced up that we are giving up.

      Best Regards.
