      My guess would be "Do I bet the turn here?" :p

      And I think you did right not barreling it, against some halfstacking unknown that probably won't fold anything he called the flop with on that turn.

      You could still fire at it planning on firing pretty much all non T/diamonds, be it as a bluff or because you improved to top pair or a straight, tho I usually prefer to have some clue that villain might fold a bad J to 3 barrel before doing that, since it changes the play from relatively marginal to quite good in my opinion.

      Pretty standard river bet, if you get raised it sucks enough that it's a fold unless you're pretty sure villain can bluff raise a busted draw. Otherwise you'll see AK/QJ/QT/98 most of the time.

      Hope it helps.
