      You should let it go on the turn. It is the abs worst second barreling card you could pick : The biggest brick there could be. To second barrel pick something like 7+. It will scare pairs with a draw heavy board, and overcards will make them second guess their Tx. Obviously, A and K are the perfect cards to barrel the turn ;) . Even when you don't have and A or a K youself :)

      7d is not really the best river barreling card
      I think you get down often with Tx and now maybe even 78 would call your down, also it makes a lot of two pair or straight combos. It usually depends how often player goes to showdown and what is your image, but I think you get called there quite often, so I don´t like firing river

      So the turn barrel is good?
