      MP3 stats 80/30 AF:2,3 fold to flop cbet:0(3) after 20 hands.

      I think it's good to second barrel here, what do you think?

      Hiya

      MP3 seems like a calling station and your hand is essentially a bluff vs his value range. It's good to semi-bluff vs opponents who can fold but you would be putting money in the pot with lower equity vs opponents who can't fold.

      What do you think is his range after he called the flop and how much FE do you expect to have vs that range?

      Vs a reg who I know is capable of floating with PPs/draws/backdoors I would definitely barrel the turn.

      Hope this helps

      Hi.

      You have so much equity on the Turn. You can never go wrong betting here. I Would just pot it and apply maximum pressure on his 2nd pair type of hands. We would improve to the best hand on the river 25% of the time.
