      I know this 2nd barrel was probably a bad idea, but they often play flushdraws here like that.

      And they're not folding those flushdraws on the turn, nor is a 43/8 guy folding Jx Ax on the turn ever. So while i agree that once you barrel the turn you likely have to barrel the river, I think it's to much money to commit on that turn card against a guy who still might not fold even the worse hands you're trying to fold out, and will never ever fold the numerous Ax hands he has in his fish range.

      Just don't bluff calling stations, you don't need to to show a profit at nl5.

      Hope it helps.
