      Hi.

      Noticed that you are barreling a lot with 2nd pair type of hands. Don't think that is ever a good play.

      Flop: Just check/call with your medium strength hand and take it from there. Don't worry about getting exploited and getting barreled off your hand, you can just start checking some AX hands to strengthen your checking range too. Or you can start check/raising some monsters on the Flop.

      With a hand like KT, I don't mind betting the Flop for thin value vs draws and worse TX hands. But definitely not betting with T8o because we just do not have value.

      Turn: By 3barreling, you are not even guaranteed a fold vs AX, and he could definitely have flushes in his range. Absolutely no reason to fire 3 here. The situation is not even favourable for us. We don't have a flush draw on the Turn (which could also act as a flush blocker).

      Thanks.

      JJ-KK is close. Because this is BvB, we can argue for a thin value bet on the Flop for value vs straight draws, flush draws and TX. In blind battles, people are defending many more TX hands.

      So I think it's fine to either check/call Flop or bet Flop check/call blank Turn. But with T8, we lose to most TX hands too, so we should not bet the Flop since we do not have value vs his overall Flop calling range.
