      CO checks, Hero bets $1.35, CO calls $1.35

      Turn: ($5) 5 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks

      River: ($5) 4 (2 players)
      CO bets $5, Hero folds

      $5 pot ($0.25 rake)
      Final Board: Q 8 6 5 4
      Hero mucked A J and lost (-$2.35 net)
      CO mucked and won $4.75 ($2.40 net)

      might seem like a very noobish question but should i be second barrelling here vs a fish? i have some nice equity, but at the same time i don't expect much FE. should i barrel regardless? turn is such a blank and i thought i'd just take my free river...

      Hi DrDunne,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Villain can have certain hands he can still fold + our equity in the hand is still strong so we can bet here. We also build up the pot in case we hit and sometimes get called by worse draws.

      I'd make it about 3.5 or so.
