      Ok. One of my first 3barrelbluffs I think.

      Standard raise pre, get called by 19/15/0 80h. Flop cbet is okay, and when he calls I feel he might wanna float me, so I decide to 2nd barrel him as the turncard makes the board drawy too. Against a raise i defo fold here, but he calls the turn too. So by this, I feel like he aint that strong, if he was he would have raised by now to a 3barrelbluff might be possible...

      The rivercard is good imo, as i dont see him holding K or A of spades all that often and that he has called down with a medium pp/a queen or something. Following up on this rivercard should look very strong from my side and I think i have alot of FE, so I decide to follow up.

      Good/bad move? Should I not try to 2nd barrel without having at least some flushouts? Should I have folded or is it okay?

      All thoughts welcome.

      I'd rather not 2nd barrel without equity here.

      He's never foldin a Q to a second barrel and of the pp he called on the flop, 88 got there and 50% of the combos of 99-JJ have a :spade: and will call again.

      So your fold equity tends to 0 in that spot :D

      Also, I wouldn't believe he's floating you with total rubbish, because you're UTG, so your range is stronger than usual.

      On the river, it's a matter of how much he folds. Let's calculate it

      At first, we'll assume he'll call you with the looses possible range, meaning any :spade: .
      That'll be:

      A :spade: Q = 3 combos
      K :spade: Q = 3 combos
      J :spade: Q = 3 combos
      J :spade: J = 3 combos
      T :spade: T = 3 combos
      9:spade: 9 = 3 combos
      Total: 21 combos

      Combos he folds:
      AQ = 9 combos
      KQ = 9 combos
      QJs = 3 combos
      Total: 21 combos

      So, I guess firing that small 3rd barrel should be profitable =) Just to get him off all hands that don't have a :spade:

      However, the 2nd barrel is a no-no :tongue:
