      SB: $18.40 (92 bb)
      BB: $20 (100 bb)
      UTG: $46.87 (234.3 bb)
      Hero (MP): $20 (100 bb)
      CO: $15.74 (78.7 bb)
      BTN: $25.47 (127.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A A
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.60, CO calls $0.60, 3 folds

      Flop: ($1.50) 9 Q A (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, CO calls $1

      Turn: ($3.50) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2, CO folds

      $3.50 pot ($0.17 rake)
      Final Board: 9 Q A 7
      Hero mucked A A and won $3.33 ($1.73 net)
      CO mucked and lost (-$1.60 net)

      Is 2nd barreling here any good? few Ax combos, Qx probably folds, but then i think he can call 1pair hands with BDFD?

      Also, if we get raised, does it just depend on pot odds if we can call? we have 14 outs, about 30% vs made flush+mahoosive implieds

      Hey Gxtwo,

      It's unfortunate that you block the nut-flush draw on the turn. The EV of bluffcatching in this spot could easily be higher than the EV of value-betting. There is also the chance you are beat, and you'd rather face one bet than bet yourself and face a raise because your implieds will be lower. Check call turn is probably good.

      Betting will still be profitable overall though. If you bet and get raised it just becomes a maths problem based on your pot-odds and estimates of your implieds.
