      I thought he had JJ,AK.
      If so, turn river barrel made sense?

      Hey,

      You are basically trying to make him fold 66-99 with your line that is just one pair. That's what I think people can fold. Never Kx, possibly not even a hand like AT, QTs. Given the low equity I don't mind actually checking it down and winning a small percentage of the time. You can delay 2 barrel other hands that can also improve to a winning hand more often.

      In a vacuum your play should still be fine but I wouldn't do it long term unless I know for sure it's for exploiting my opponent's loose turn range and wide river fold range.

      I wouldn't do it. We have no equity, we get called often, we cannot barrel. Basically, if you cbet you expect him to fold often enough to one bet and you don't lose anything else later. If he folds 1/3 of the time to a 50% pot cbet it's ofc a cbet but I didn't find it to work enough here if I consider having very low equity.
