      UTG: $8.16
      Hero (CO): $12.09
      BTN: $4.40
      SB: $10.00

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has J:spade: J:diamond:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.40, BTN calls $0.40, fold, BB calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.25, 3 players) A:diamond: 4:spade: A:heart:
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.70, BTN calls $0.70, fold

      Turn: ($2.65, 2 players) 5:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.70, Hero raises to $10.99 and is all-in, BTN calls $1.60 and is all-in

      River: ($9.25, 2 players) 7:diamond:

      Villain is 46/6/4

      I thought he could pay me on flop with all sort of pairs, not necessary with A. I also expected him to bet after my check on turn with any pair or A, so I shoved considering he had only 1.6$ behind, and he would shoved the river for sure.

      3-way on the flop I tend to not bet against aggressive villains, especially when they're short stacked. They tend to put you in very ugly spots on later streets unless you know them well enough to know when you can call down. Also people player so many Ax hands that it's actually not that rare for one of them to have trips, hence I prefer to take it easy on the flop, see what happens and start valuebetting on the turn if somebody seems too excited by the hand.

      As played on the turn, you know him and I don't. If you're positive he's bet/calling worse hands or pure float it can't be bad, but I'm not so sure about it myself.

      Hope it helps.
