How to properly play this

This is a $1 180p regular sng on PS. 32 players left

Villain 111 hands 39/21, 39% WTSD when saw flop

My doubts are about the 2nd barrel, should I second barrel hands like these? Cbet sizes are ok? any other point about the hand?

Thanks a lot

    Check turn. You haven't picked up any more equity and the card doesn't improve your perceived range, so anything villain called with on the flop he'll likely call again with on the turn. You also have to be concerned about the As/Ks.

    Re: How to properly play this

    Thanks, I kind of knew it. I think I have a problem with this kind of hands. I feel like any check I make at Turn, equals to a villain bet.

    Sometimes they have a good hand, sometimes bottom pair or draws, sometimes air. But they always bet if I check turn. I think I made that bet because I wanted to reach river "cheap".

    How can I solve this issue? should I cbet less? should I check turn with some made/strong hands? Maybe I over-cbet and always double barrel good hands.

    Is this a problem I have or standar play of villains?

    Do both too add some balance to your game. But there is nothing wrong with x/folding the turn in a spot like this when you don't have a hand. You're not entitled to win the pot just because you're the aggressor or because you started with a strong hand. Sometimes you just have to back down and move on to the next hand.

    Yah I think this is a board I'd be checking the flop. AQ is sort of in the middle of our range here and that spade is gonna let us call down a bit more often against aggressive players on later streets.
