Second Barrel ?

This hand is about whether to light a second barrel and bet again on the turn so that the opponent folds.

However, this is not the spot for a second barrel because:

    a) this opponent, with a high WTSD, will not fold a better hand against another bet.

    b) with his AF, he’ll only check if he has nothing and bet when he’s got something.

A check on the turn is thereore good, since if he bets we can easily fold since we’re probably beat.

On this hand, I can only say that you should never complete with KK in a multiway pot from the SB.
Just never, not even for variation or deception. You’ll be playing OOP in a multiway pot on the flop and your equity will sink drastically.
This is important for beginners to know. The same is true of aces or queens.

The bet on the flop is ok, and on the turn you should bet around $4 and then fold to a raise.
