      Hey,

      I think I made a mistake on the turn in this hand.

      Villain is unknown.

      But firstly, how big would you make it PF?

      Now I think we should just x/f turn because even fish doesn't like to continue paired boards. I actually did 2nd barrel because I didn't want to get floated and then x/f

      Hi farma,

      PF: I wouldn't mind isoraising A9o in BU but I think it's too weak in SB (AT+). Sizing is reasonable.

      F: Standard Bet, I may check back Flop against someone with wide ranges and when I'm in position but I prefer to just bet OOP to make things easier.

      T: Good scare card. I wouldn't barrel bluff the Ace (if i didn't have an Ace) cos I think people c/c Flop with a ton of Ace highs here.

      R: Another good scarecard. Just barrel again and try to fold out some weak hands like 57s or 88/99/TT

      He had 69s. Don't you think that if we bet the turn, we have to barrel any riveR?

      I'm not too sure if we should just barrel always. But you got the best river card for barrel bluffing so you should do it.

      Yeah I see:) . But what to do on a blank river? I think we shouldn't bet the turn if we aren't ready to barrel through?

      And would you complete in SB or just fold because of the bad playabilty?

      Def completing, a9 dominates a limpers range.

      As for the flop 2nd barrel, we can fold out some ace high and k high floats so its fine. And we can still improve to 9 or A pair or bluff a K and J
