Hi Nocco,

I would generally barrel the turn when I pick up the flush draw. We can get value from heart draws and maybe hands like AQ that are getting stubborn, and we may get smallish pocket pairs to fold either now to a 2nd barrel, or with a 3rd barrel on a big river card (T-Q).

Generally when I pick up equity on the turn I'm more inclined to barrel, especially when it has fold equity and can set up a possible river bluff on a lot of river cards that miss me.
