      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      CO: $56.25
      BTN: $79.73
      SB: $14.00
      Hero (BB): $110.88

      SB posts SB $0.25, Hero posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.75) Hero has Q:spade: J:diamond:

      CO calls $0.50, fold, fold, Hero raises to $2.25, CO calls $1.75

      Flop: ($4.75, 2 players) K:heart: 3:spade: 8:club:
      Hero bets $3.00, CO calls $3.00

      Turn: ($10.75, 2 players) 4:club:
      Hero checks, CO bets $5.00, fold

      Villain plays 36/15, fold to cbet 67% (4/6) bet vs missed cbet 100% ip (1/1), oop (3/3).

      I think that there are not to many Kx in his range but more likley some 8x or PP, probably doesnt have any random floats as it seems like he folds often to cbets.
      Does it make sense to barrel turn and even a blank river to fold out the weaker parts of his range?

      Bet Flop Check/fold is standard here. We did not pick up additional equity, turn card did not change the board at all. We are also not guaranteed that he is folding 8X here on the Turn.

      Flop fold to cbet is also 4 out of 6 times which is pretty high. That reduces the amount of weak hands in his flop continuation range, which definitely makes a Turn barrel a lot worse (Turn barrels are usually aimed at weaker parts of the Flop calling range like lower pairs and Ace highs and some weaker draws like backdoor draws or gutshots and not meant to fold out top pairs)
