Would betting on this scare card really be worth it with no equity? seeing as 46s has no outs on this board if it's a rainbow.
Definitly not worth barreling at the turn again, IMO.
Also depends of your opponents image and tendencies, but at this board I would rather just give up ,especially if we're early in the tournament.
Your opponent wouldn't (probably) fold any J at this turn bet, a few Ax type hands are also in his range, so the ace also might hit him.
Depends what you think he has , and are you willing to fire a river bullet also?
But, overall I would just give up.
