      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q J
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, BTN calls $0.75, 2 folds

      Hero bets $1.17, BTN calls $1.17

      Turn: ($4.19) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.66, BTN calls $2.66

      River: ($9.51) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      74/4, fold to flop cbet 67, fold to turn cbet 50 (7/14) wtsd: 32, h:400

      Can we continue barreling in spots like this, or should I just check/fold strong draws? Kinda bad card to barrel, but he folded 50% so far on the turn, and our equity is still ok, and probably can get more value if he calls and we hit.

      Think about your turn equity, vs your turn fold equity.

      What does villain have in his range here after calling the Flop? With such a high fold to Flop cbet, I think he mostly has 45/heart draws/A5/A4/KX/midpairs. Only hands we get to fold out on the Turn are the gutshots. And I don't think we can c/c or bet again on the River so I think c/f flop should be ok.

      Betting Turn makes more sense if villain's range is much wider than 2nd pair and flush draws. If we thought that villain would fold many draws on the Turn, or have some worse hands like Ace high, then betting the Turn makes more sense.
