      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 4:club: , 4:spade:
      MP2 raises to $1,50, Hero calls $1,50, 2 folds, SB calls $1,25, BB folds.

      Flop: ($5,00) T:club: , T:heart: , 8:club: (3 players)
      SB checks, MP2 checks, Hero bets $4,75, SB folds, MP2 calls $4,75.

      Turn: ($14,50) 3:club: (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $8,00, MP2 calls $8,00.

      River: ($30,50) 5:club: (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $30,50

      Is it alright to lead after 2 checks on this flop?

      Barreling again is kind of exaggerated though, isnt it?

      I think it's fine to bet on the flop although usually i make it a smaller bet as most of the time they will have nothing and a small bet will suffice in taking it down. I give up on turn though.

      Once MP2 check/calls two streets, it starts to look like monster hands, quads or a boat, at the very least trip tens, to me.

      Maybe he doesn't have a club, or is looking for more value on the river, but c/behind is fine here.

      I think once he check/calls the flop, I would be thinking about a ten in his hand at least. Why is he, as pfa, doing that? It is a potsize bet.

      Check behind the turn, then he has to bet his monster or check his non club hands on the river.

      Once Mp2 calls on the flop, you likely don´t have enough fold equity to barrel turn and once you barrel turn, you likely have to barrel river with J, Q, K, A cards.
      Checking river is fine.
