Double barrel spot vs tight SB

Hi guys

Villain is 18/16 in 25 hands. Folded twice already vs steal in SB

The turn card is a very nice to barrel...but at the same time it hits Villain defending SB range

So if i barrel i can make him fold some 88 and some club draw without Ac (KcQc) but not the rest of combos he defends SB with , which have a lot of Ax in them...what do you think of my line of thinking?

Re: Double barrel spot vs tight SB

Let's assume his stats are accurate and he's a solid TAG. What does he call with in the SB against a UTG open? 22-JJ, suited Aces, and suited connector stuff.

The interesting thing is he x/c the flop after you CB vs 2 players and BB is still to act. So he has something for sure. Given his starting stack I think he just shoves the flop with a good draw. With 26bb to start I don't think he's going to be passively drawing to anything. I think we can remove all the Axcc combos for that reason.

So his x/c on the flop has me leaning towards a monster (99, maybe some combos of A6/76/65), top pair (A9) or a decent overpair playing pot control against your strong range (JJ/TT).

Assuming he x/shoves good draws and folds all his other missed/mediocre stuff, the turn card will scare JJ/TT but nothing else. The other problem with betting the turn is you'll hate if he shoves. So I like the turn check.

If he gets to the river with any hands you beat I don't think he leads with any of them so I like the fold.

If we were deeper I like the barrel but his flat range on the flop has to be pretty strong.
