      Well you could be right or wrong about that, depending on who he is.

      1/ If he is a fish there isn't much that he didn't fold on the flop that he's going to fold on that turn unless he calls the flop really wide with random overcards and stuff, especially when you bet so small.

      2/ If he's an average reg with some pair or A-high he'll fold a whole bunch of them just because the Q is an overcard even tho your value range for betting there is probably way smaller than your bluffing range, especially if you c-bet A-high on the flop.

      3/ If he's a decent reg with the same range he'll recognize you could be betting there with nothing a lot and make the call again with everything he called the flop with, especially when you bet so small.

      Situation 2 is a good 2-barreling spot. Situations 1&3 are usually very bad 2-barreling spots, referred to as "1 or 3"-barrel spots because both 1-barrel and 3-barrel those boards are way better options than burning a 2nd barrel before giving up on the river.

      Hope it helps.
