      Pretty classic case where I'm rarely sure what to do.

      Hi,
      you can play b/f c/c c/f it depends on opponent.
      If we assume that he is standard NL10 player (not so fishy not so tag) then limp/call from utg often means 22-99

      He calls your PF raise , he calls your cbet.
      On this board with pocket pair he can think that he is ahead of your unimproved overcards.
      He can have Flush draw -> not so often
      He can have slowplayed higher pocket pair-> not so often
      He can have 22 ,99 -> possible but not so often

      When K hits the turn and you will play bet/fold you are changing your hand into bluff , no worse hand will call you and no better hand will fold. This is not so good spot to 2nd barrel because there is no value in this play. If you were holding ATo for example you can 2nd barrel it makes sense with TT I rather play check/call turn to give smaller pocket chance to play float. If you call turn , you reevaluate river . But usually you play check/fold to normal size bet.
      If opponent checks behind on turn you can bet for value 1/2-2/3 pot on river when no diamond hit the board.

      I think most of this is sound advice. Determining factor is how sure you are about what he'll bet with on the turn when you check to him, because the biggest mistakes you can make is check/folding if he's betting any two and check/calling if he's only betting 9x/Kx. Some tags will bet diamond draws, others won't. Almost all of them will bet Kx/9x. Some will bet a pure float but their c-bet calling range has to be wide enough to even have those to begin with. And if he's a fish only you can make an educated guess on what he'll bet.

      General guidelines are against very aggressive players to either bet/fold to make it easier or to be prepared to call two streets with your eyes closed, against aggressive players to check/call once, against passive players to bet/fold.


      Hope it helps.
