      Sometimes I would even ch/f this flop since it's multiway, but as it's still pretty dry I guess a cb is fine as well.

      The turn is not good at all for a 2nd barrel imo, because it improves a possible 2nd pair you won't make any better hand fold.

      yo´re not folding out better hands, he might call you with 8 or flushdraw, so I think betting turn is fine. just then you have to be prepared sometimes c/c river

      Hi Kaitz,

      but don't you think most hands beat him on this turn? he's only ahead of FD, an 8 improved and a K beats him bad, in which case isn't it better to try checking it down?

      Yeah, since 8 paired then it is likely you´re beat and shouldn´t really bet turn for value, but again it depends, some players would call you down there with 66 if you´r image is bad.
      I think c/c turn is a little more better than b/f and then you have to decide river if you want to c/f or c/c
