      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BB: $50 (100 bb)
      UTG: $15.75 (31.5 bb)
      MP: $63.06 (126.1 bb)
      CO: $59.25 (118.5 bb)
      BTN: $52.75 (105.5 bb)
      Hero (SB): $53.19 (106.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9 A
      3 folds, BTN raises to $1.50, Hero calls $1.25, BB folds

      Flop: ($3.50) 4 A Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $2, Hero calls $2

      Turn: ($7.50) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $5, Hero calls $5

      River: ($17.50) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      $17.50 pot ($0.87 rake)
      Final Board: 4 A Q 2 3
      BTN mucked 3 J and lost (-$8.50 net)
      Hero showed 9 A and won $16.63 ($8.13 net)

      Plan was to x/c river as well.

      From GTO perspective I think this is the optimal play. I'm thinking what kind of adjustment should I be making. I don't really know whether to expect people to 3barrel me here, though I think it is a very good spot to do so.

      How would you approach this?

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Depends a lot on the BTN though I don't expect him to be 3barreling here that often. If he is more towards aggressive side then we have easy call-down vs BTN range which is wide and may easily contain even weaker Ax hands.

      Best Regards.

      this depends a lot on the player.

      while the turn barrel is becoming the new cbet, few villains have the guts to fire a third barrel on the river with air. that's why i think x/c river is bad if you don't have a read on villain, because you will get valuetowned a lot
