I think it depends highly on how much fold Equity you think you have and therefore how aggressive he is barreling the turn. I also like c/r against aggressive opponents here, because you realize some more Equity on the river, when you hit some weak twopair you would need to fold to another barrel, right? Small point, but imo still remains.

Otherwise against unknowns and tighter/passive players im All for Just calling the turn.

"This board likely gets checked through a lot as well, so I think you
can start making them feel indifferent and pressured right away by
betting something like 1/3 pot. It's very possible there are multiple
sizings with a lead, but the board is pretty locked down and larger
sizings I think make it easier on all of them within this dynamic."

i assume your talking about flop action up until that point? i agree with sizing down on a locked down board, but do you recognize this flop as locked down? I dont see it as that.

The texture and your blockers make me think UTG's turn calling range is filled with a lot of FD's/combo draws. He likely doesn't have that many two pair+ combos at all, so the river should hit his turn calling range pretty well. He also has to worry about the BTN who called the turn as well, so I believe players in UTG's spot tend to play more straight forward and unbalanced in that spot.

completely agree on this part. makes me think i should not call here. totally different story, if we are headsup OTR.

Blinds: $0.10/$0.25 (6 Players) BN: $55.83
SB: $25.00
BB: $27.05
UTG: $40.07 (Hero)
MP: $19.43
CO: $29.00
BTN: (VPIP/PFR/3bet): 48/15/18 and has cbet so far 4 out of 4 of his flops. but only 27 hands. Cant remember what hands i saw, but he striked me as a aggresive player so far.
Preflop ($0.35) Hero is UTG with 7 T 8 9
Hero raises to $0.85, 2 folds, BN raises to $2.90, 2 folds, Hero calls $2.05
Flop ($6.15) 9 Q 5
Hero checks, BN bets $5.89, Hero calls $5.89
I have second pair+double gutshot (one to the nuts)+BDFD here. Against unknown i would always only call here, but i considered raising against this opponent. One reason being stack sizes because so i could decrease his advantage of position. But i wasnt confident enough in my read so i only called.
Turn ($17.93) 9 Q 5 3
Hero checks, BN bets $8.50, Hero raises to $31.28 and is all in, BN calls $22.78
His betsize looked weak and my hand is to strong too fold here. Also the turn doesnt improve his range at all. So i decided to go with my hand as i thought i have decent fold equity and didnt want to c/c and fold unimproved river.
