      Hello, wasn't sure whether to bet on turn, maybe some pot control would have been better (or a larger bet?). If there was a raise then I would have considered a call depending on size. On the river I assume it would be stupid to bluff again, but then again the villain hadn't shown any aggression...


      (P.S AKo is my least favourite hand)

      bet on turn is fine
      bet river again, you have a blocker, so the A :spade: or K :spade: is less likely in the villain's range

      villain does seem to know a bit what he's doing(a.k.a he's not a fish), so bet river because you have a high chance of making him fold his one-pair type hands, as QJ is not likely in his range because he didn't raise flop

      I think barreling turn is fine, since you get fold hands like AJ (without As) that would fold to turn barrel. Since he calls again I think he very often has there KQ/AQ that he would not fold to third barrel, so check back is always fine option. If you want to bluff then I would bet at least 0.56$ to have fold equity against KQ and worse tp/middle pair hands

      best regards,

      Thanks for the reply! Yeh I thought it maybe gd idea to bet again on the river, although I'm not 100% sure about bet size on the river, should I bet half the pot or less than half?

      EDIT: Only just read Kaitz's reply, so check or bet on river is fine, just as long as the bet is big enough. Thank you!
