      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL (6 max) FAST - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 105.1 BB
      SB: 78 BB
      BB: 28 BB
      Hero (UTG): 153.6 BB
      MP: 103.7 BB
      CO: 146.7 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has T:heart: A:spade:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, CO calls 3 BB, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.75, 2 players) K:spade: 5:spade: 8:spade:
      Hero bets 5.4 BB, CO calls 5.4 BB

      Turn: ($1.83, 2 players) 7:heart:
      Hero bets 13 BB, CO calls 13 BB

      River: ($4.43, 2 players) 6:club:
      Hero bets 31.5 BB, CO calls 31.5 BB

      Hero shows T:heart: A:spade: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 62%, Flop 46%, Turn 27%)
      CO shows 2:heart: K:heart: (One Pair, Kings) (Pre 38%, Flop 54%, Turn 73%)
      CO wins 102 BB

      Should I barrel river? No info on guy.
      River looks superscary, and I think he raises me on turn or flop with sets or two pair. It is very likely that he also called with flush draw, or with Kx, so I tried to fold it, and when I bet is my bet size ok to scare him, or it is enough 50%?

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: looks fine

      Turn/River: While a draw may have completed it's a backdoor draw so I doubt villain will get really scared and fold Kx because the cards are low and no fd completed.

      The only hands I see him folding are draws that we already beat (although those draws may try a bluff) however there aren't that many combos anyway. Plus villain can have a made flush already that's slowplaying so all in all I don't like our 3-barrel bluff vs unknown.
