      Hey Daisuke3823,

      Looks like a pretty good spot to turn your hand into a bluff-catcher on the turn. You won't get called by worse very often.

      However BBvsSB villain may have some floats in his range + marginal showdown which he may bluff with or check-back respectively.

      Either way you can usually fold to river barrel. But depends on villain - some will auto-fire 2 very often in this spot so Ax is a perfect bluff-catcher.

      As played villain has a stronger range after he calls 2 barrels (compared to his range for calling flop and then betting turn himself), so I would fold river.
