      Against a loose-agg pf caller you can fire again on the turn for value. A high variance play for sure but you could easily have ten outs if you are in fact behind.

      Against a tight or weak player it is better to check the turn and perhaps only bet scarier/helpful turn cards. eg. Q's / :club: 's. Very opponent specific.

      Trying to check down is not a bad play either since you typically surrender very little value here. You need some reads IMO before you start firing multiple-barrels per se.

      Check/fold...I don't think that he would fold his pocket pair on this turn. Maybe he wants to float you, but I don't think that you should bet a second time with A high in this spot. If a scarecard like a Q would have appeared on the board, a seond barrel might have worked out.

      Good luck at the tables!
