      is this a board that i want to be double barrelling into. In retrospect i don't particularly like the double barrell because all pps are calling me right? and i might have to triple barrell to get a hand like 77 or 88 to fold and even then it's probably not happening. and i have one of the best hands that isn't a pp

      Flop: Your bet size, is way too small. Would make it $1-1.10 here.

      Turn: I like this turn card. Basically on boards with trip low cards (222, 333, 444 etc), when you are in UTG with a tight opening range, you can just pot every street, or at least start potting the Turn and River. You can bluff a ton here, and rep large overpairs at the same time.
