      After your cbet gets called on a 3-handed flop, you should assume villain has something (not always a strong hand, but in NL2 I can see villain calling your cbet with any ten, maybe even with A8 or smthing.)

      And again, since this is NL2 I don't think second barrells are profitable, here villains go to showdown with second or third pair, that's why we play for value on this limits. Leave second barrels for higher limits I think.

      +1

      Just C/F unless you improve. In higher limits you can second barrel with this card representing a king. In NL2 You don't have FE as people can't throw way a pair even if it's a middle pair.
