      UTG: $46.67 (93.3 bb)
      SB: $51 (102 bb)
      Hero (BB): $50 (100 bb)
      CO: $63.07 (126.1 bb)
      BTN: $49.25 (98.5 bb)
      MP: $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A A
      3 folds, BTN raises to $1.50, SB folds, Hero raises to $4.75, BTN calls $3.25

      Flop: ($9.75) 2 8 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.63, BTN calls $4.63

      Turn: ($19.01) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $9.99, Hero raises to $29, BTN raises to $39.87 and is all-in, Hero calls $10.87

      River: ($98.75) 9 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $98.75 pot ($3 rake)
      Final Board: 2 8 7 9 9
      Hero showed A A and lost (-$49.25 net)
      BTN showed T J and won $95.75 ($46.50 net)

      stats is 25/15/20 and ftcb 50 flop and af 1.0/3.0/0.0
      I checkraised because he would burrel with JJ,QQ,KK and Jx hand or BDFD.
      On 3bet pot, should I have to care about draw?

      Moreover, I'm still BSS beginner so how about my flop betsize?
      On 3betpot, I CB half regardless board structure, wet or dry.
      Is it profitable to change bet size for board structure because of implied odds?

      Hello Gonchan,

      Guess I'd still make it like $5 on the flop and rather Bet the turn myself than let him Check behind with weaker hands. Check/Raise will just scare away a lot weaker PPs which may still Call if you bet and even Call the river.

      Best Regards.
