      Pre-flop: no comment
      Flop: Standard cbet. My intentions are to take the pot here or 2nd barrel on any :diamond: , Q+.
      Both (F and T) are bet/fold.

      What are/aren't you 2nd barreling on the turn? Bet J+ and any :diamond: ?

      I don't like to check T, because I'm OOP and easily give control away if opponent bets after my ch.
      Also, after my T bet he's folding out: some KJ+, some Tx, 66-99, some Ax hands.
      That's why I think this is a profitable play.

      Hello,

      Your play is totally fine if you expect him to float oftne enough but I wouldn't try that often against such oppoents to 2nd barrel in 3bet pot because they are very often having some kind of PP in their hand excpecially against tight opponents.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
