granted, I'm without reads... so this could be totally different if I had a read on them.

Cassidy must have put Barry on a mid pp or suited connector. After the hand, he called Magnus's hand totally correct, but I think he misread Barry preflop. If he put him on an A, then he'd have mucked the lower kicker preflop.
Magnus's call preflop makes sense, as she's got a suited 1-gap and getting almost 3-1 on her $$.

I liked her flop bet with 2 pair, as it'll tell her basically, exactly where she's at in the hand. Barry just calling it, screams trip K to me and with his preflop raise, should be AK or KQs.

I don't, however like her check/call on the turn. She either needs to lead out with a bet, or check and fold to a bet by Barry. Barry's bet of about 1/2 the pot is exactly what I'd expect from a K... build the pot, but not too much as to scare someone off. With 2 pair and an over-pair on the board, no way would I just call his turn bet, as by hitting the 2nd pair, it wouldn't have helped her against a K and she didn't have a straight draw. By just calling it, I'd want at least a striaght draw and 2-pair already.
