      Hi guys,

      The villain's stats are 8/4/73, and all the rest of 24 stats that my HUD displays are literally zero :)

      Is it fine to 2nd barrel him on this board? I give him some pockets in his calling range. He will miss often. He might call the flop with a medium pair, but after the king showed up, I thought that he either has a set or he will fold.

      Rocks are pretty bluffable, aren't they? He is short though, so I really don't know.

      Also, what about bet-sizing? 1/2 the pot is fine to bluff into one opponent on a dry board?


      PS: no, I don't buy in with 550 bb, just a lucky table :)

      Preflop raising is fine.

      Considering the board texture and villain's stack you could go for a smaller cbet - like $0.07.

      On the turn the card is good for second barrel, but he has pretty small stack.
      I prefer here to give up and don't end up getting called by 44 for example.
