      BTN: $4.71 (94.2 bb)
      SB: $7.49 (149.8 bb)
      BB: $5.78 (115.6 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $9.69 (193.8 bb)
      MP: $4.54 (90.8 bb)
      CO: $19.17 (383.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A A
      Hero raises to $0.20, MP calls $0.20, CO calls $0.20, BTN calls $0.20, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.87) 9 A Q (4 players)
      Hero bets $0.85, MP calls $0.85, CO folds, BTN calls $0.85

      Turn: ($3.42) K (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks, BTN bets $2.10, Hero raises to $8.64, MP folds, BTN calls $1.56

      River: ($10.74) T (2 players)

      $10.74 pot ($0.45 rake)
      Final Board: 9 A Q K T
      BTN showed J T and won $10.29 ($5.58 net)
      Hero showed A A and lost (-$4.71 net)
      MP mucked and lost (-$1.05 net)

      What do we do on turn? BTN was on really tight side so I tought he had set, but I looked at hand after session it doesnt make sense, because he would raise sets on such a wet flop. Is this a c/f spot? They would most likely raise 2pair+ on flop and are drawing mostly, ugly card hits, prolly c/f.

      Hello Huseens,

      Would assume he raises his 2pairs/sets on the flop to protect rather than slowplay like that. So might be even a reason to just Check/Fold it. If we assume that he is capable of slowplaying like that his sets then we are going broke.

      Best Regards.
