      i won't second barrel here against an unknown.

      just hope he checks behind and we get to see the river free.

      Hey LilSteewe,

      the board is quite dry on the flop, so I would c-bet less here, 2.50-2.75$ should do the trick. After villain doesn't give up on the flop you should just give up the hand unless improved, because I don't think he will give up his pair if you second barrel and besides another Q is a bad card to second barrel since you can't represent much with it. I also don't think he will try to float you here, it's usually not the style of 39/29 players, so if he bets you're usually beat.

      Regards,
