      Should I barrel turn again?
      On the river, can I value bet bigger and should I be ready to go broke for 300BB with 2nd nuts?

      I am not a big fan of 3 betting this hand oop deep. As played a double barrel should get him off 88-1010.

      I think your bet sizing is good on the river it can be called by 88-1010 and AJ.

      Have you got any idea of his 3 bet calling ranges? would he call with A10s and even lower suited aces? Would be a really though spot if he raised your bet on the river i would just call.

      Whether I 3bet preflop depends on my relationship with CO so far, and his tendencies.

      I always cbet the flop, but I bet $10 here. I am protecting my overpair against draws.

      After my strong flop bet, if called, I 2nd barrell.

      After your weak flop bet, and your check on the turn, if I was him I would bet/fold for $20, not $10. Give you a difficult decision to make.

      As played turn, easy call for this small amount.

      I like the river bet size, however, given his passivity up to now, if he raised here it will most often be the nut flush, and I would fold.

      Also not sure about 3-bet pf, I would much more prefer 3-bet ip.
      You should b/f turn, since imo you don´t get good enough odds if he had bet 20$ there+ you have huge fold equity.
      River valuebet is fine
