      BB: $50 (100 bb)
      MP: $52 (104 bb)
      CO: $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with T:club: A:club:
      MP folds, CO raises to $1.50, Hero calls $1.50, SB calls $1.25, BB folds

      Flop: ($5) 7:club: 6:heart: 5:spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, CO checks, Hero bets $3.25, SB calls $3.25, CO folds

      Turn: ($11.50) K:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $7, SB calls $7

      River: ($25.50) J:club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $17,

      SB is 23/14, 32% agg., 68 hands

      Should bet this flop? I guess it`s close with 2 overs + BDFD.

      The turn is a good card to barrel. Should i bet here, unless i plan to bet the river as well?

      On the river? I think he will raise his strong hands on the flop/turn, so he should have mainly 44/78/79s/A7/88-TT and i think he can fold these hands?

      Flop bet is fine for sure. Sizing depends, maybe you could go slightly smaller, like 3 or 2.80 to risk less for your steal.

      I don't think he's folding too much on the Turn. It's an obvious scare card for you, and you don't have too many kings in your range besides KQ and KJ. I think he also has stuff like 87s 86s 88 a lot of the time which will call Turn again.

      So IMO if you wanna barrel you should 3barrel.
