      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A J
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, SB folds, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65) T K A (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.50, BB calls $0.50

      Turn: ($1.65) 9 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.80, BB calls $0.80

      River: ($3.25) A (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.20, BB raises to $2.40, Hero calls $1.20

      Results: $8.05 pot ($0.40 rake)
      Final Board: T K A 9 A

      I could bet bigger on turn and fold if raised.And I also have to bet bigger because I don't want to give up my hand and extract value from Ax.

      Hey,

      Since there are 3 Aces out there, I would just check back the River. There are straights & flushes possible that for sure are calling your bet. The River check/raise you are facing is just an indication your three of a kind is not good

      Mostly you want to bet the Turn for free showdown so betting bigger is a must

      Best regards,
      Gerv
