      I thought villain is likely to have QQ/JJ after checking the turn so I decided to barrel. Was probably wrong this time but is it a good play?

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Either Bet the flop instead whilst have there more fold equity than Checking behind the flop and then betting the turn. If we Bet the turn then very often have to 2nd barrel it as well.

      Best Regards.
