      CO ($3.59) 90bb
      BTN ($4) 100bb
      HERO (SB) ($4.14) 104bb
      BB ($8.10) 203bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 4 players) HERO is SB 7:heart: A:heart:
      CO calls $0.04, 1 fold, HERO raises to $0.18, 1 fold, CO calls $0.14

      Flop: 2:spade: 8:club: K:diamond: ($0.40, 2 players)
      HERO bets $0.27, CO calls $0.27

      Turn: 3:spade: ($0.94, 2 players)
      HERO checks, CO bets $0.45, HERO?

      69/29, FCB:25, SD:48, AF:1.9, 48h

      Should I consider 2-barrel on such a board? He`s still got many air hands on the turn. I think he`s creative enough to bet the turn with complete air.

      Hello dienaszaglis,

      CB once & fit/Fold doesn't make sense cause the guy is floating you very likely in those spots. Then rather just Check the flop and most likely plan to give up.

      Best Regards.

      So, VS such a players I should be c/f air hands, and bet equity hands?

      What to do in this spot with A:club: 7:club: ? Just check and try to improve/go to showdown (c/f basically)?

      What if I had A:diamond: 8:diamond: ? Bet flop, barrel any :diamond: /A/8?

      His fold to cbet seems low but I think you can still cbet here. That's his overall fold to cbet and I would expect his fold to cbet in this exact situation on this exact board texture to be much higher. I don't see why he would call the Flop with a hand like T9, for example.

      I think it's fine to cbet once and give up. We can just bet between 50-65% of the pot, and our actual fold equity would probably be around 40-50% on this board.

      On lower boards though, I'll probably check and decide based on size. We have little fold equity but we can hope to get to showdown.
