      Hi DrDunne,

      Preflop: looks good

      Flop: What turns do you plan on barreling. It's good to have a plan to barrel but also to choose which turns we barrel.

      List them out and let's discuss them :)

      ok

      2-7 (no :spade: )i barrel but question my FE since it's such a blank villain probably will still continue. i never know whether barreling on such blanks is good or not for this reason...

      pretty much any J i probably barrel too since i turn the GS and if i brick the river then i can easily give up considering he called down this far.

      i'm also barreling for 1 more street if i turn a Q or an A.. and i can barrel on a spade as well.

      the thing is i expect him to fold lots of non Tx hands here and once he calls the 2ndbarrel i pretty much have to give him credit i think..

      Ok, so how often do you see these cards on the turn? How often can we barrel?

      It should be pretty high and since we have some backdoor and 2 overs our bets are fine.

      Since villain is unknown we can't expect him to float too light if we barrel a brick (like a low 2-7) so we can give up on river.
