      opponent is somehow std regish weakish TAG :)

      actually I was always just barreling these runnouts where I face no agression, because std reg is never balancing x/c range and they're just so weak in one pair + draw hand, but what do you think about this play? I guess it's even more plus even then just 3 barrel? I get much more dead money this way?

      I was just going to set a bet OTR and then I had this aha moment :) ... hopefully not a spew ^^

      It depends on what you want to achieve.

      1) He probably never bets the river with less than 2 pair. I think he usually checks back his medium strength made hands. by checking here, he usually wins the showdown

      2) I think his betting range on the River is mostly busted draws. With that said, I think a river CR could be fine purely to shutdown those hands. If you are rebluffing vs bluffs, you don't need to make a huge raise. So your raise size seems ok to me here.

      3) If you want to fold out his pair + draws, a 3rd barrel is a much better play. Just pot the River or something, I would probably make a huge turn and river bet.
