      Are you normally barreling turn in scary cards against fish? Or you just give up most of the time? I think he might float a lot here with overcards (so maybe i shouldnt cbet the flop even..).

      You beat a lot of the overcard hands he might want to call with imo and that turn is the perfect card to bet turn and otr with as well. When he calls us down with 43o we have the perfect opportunity to stop barrelling against him and going for max value with 2nd pair.

      I'm not sure about the flop cbet, I do tend to feel it hits his range a loot more than mine so if he seems like the type to not fold I generally just give it up there.

      Hi Lunitis,

      One of the reasons we cbet that flop with only 2 overcards is that we can continue on many turns and put pressure on his weak range.

      That turn card is perfect for us to barrel on and scoop the pot up.

      I'd bet $3.5 or so.
