      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with J:spade: , J:heart:
      Hero raises to $0.80, UTG2 calls $0.80, 7 folds.

      Two questions:

      1) Second barrel on turn?
      2) Correct fold?

      I would push turn, because another K on the turn makes it less likely villain is holding one. And I believe a FD or lower PP will pay you off in this spot.

      I also think making a slightly higher c-bet wouldn't be a mistake, since board is drawy and you would have an easier push on the turn.

      Hi William,

      C-bet is fine but I auto-shove here on the Turn. % odds that he has a King is decreased dramatically. You beat a flushdraw and you beat a straightdraw ;)

      Best regards,
      Gerv
