      Hello, here my question is: Should i barrel one more time 1/2 pot on the turn?
      My villain looks like that after 3000 hands:VPIP 20 PFR 16 Cbet flop 47 raise frrom MP 10%, AF 2 flop AF 3 turn AF 3 river WTSD 25.
      My preflop thought was like that: just call preflop IP with a medium strong hand vs his range.On the flop i should barrel because of my second pair good kicker and my gutshot.But now the tricky part is on the turn, but looking again, he shows weakness and i should barrel again to fold his draws or weak jacks.

      If villain's flop to cbet is higher here, I would consider betting Turn for thin value. But since his flop cbet is low, I think his Flop c/c range can definitely have a bunch of stronger hands. QQ/KQ/AK are all in his range and we definitely don't have a 2nd barrel for value.

      I think I would also prefer checking back on the Flop, but it's close with 2PTK.

      As played, check down on River.
