      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.35, BTN calls $0.35, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.85) 3 :spade: 7 :heart: 6 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, BTN calls $0.50

      Turn: ($1.85) K :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.90, BTN folds


      I didn't really think about his range during play, but I guess he could have any sets or AJ+JQs+. My plan was to cbet/fold on the flop but after the scarecard K came I decided to 2nd barrel it and give it up if I get action

      Preflop: Not sure why you are opening 3.5bb here. I would open a wide range from late position and when your range is weak in general your raise size should be smaller.

      Flop: I think cbet here is fine

      Turn: When should we barrel the Turn?
      -Our equity improves
      -Board improves our perceived range

      K is a scare card and it improves our perceived range. So I think betting here as a bluff is reasonable. Maybe you can bet a bit more, 1-1.10 but it's not a huge deal.
