      Hello 13BlackCats,

      Wouldn't say it's standard to just CB once and give up every turn card. There are still enough of 2nd barrel cards for us as even overcards as K/A cause he could be still floating loose vs you. Though the J might be not that good card whilst now he might also have improve his hand as for example J:sX hand + of course Qx holdings. Nor we can't be sure if the guy is willing to even fold 7x cause he seems to be rather bad player without even playing with full stack.

      Also we should very often barrel extra equity cards as well which improve our hand to FD/SD or whatsoever even stronger hand.

      Best Regards.
