      Preflop: Hero is BB with A 8
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.12, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.40, BTN calls $0.28

      Flop: ($0.82) 3 7 T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, BTN calls $0.60

      Turn: ($2.02) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.44, BTN raises to $3.18 and is all-in, Hero calls $1.56 and is all-in

      River: ($8.02) 8 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Results:
      $8.02 pot ($0.40 rake)
      Final Board: 3 7 T A 8
      Hero showed A 8 and lost (-$4 net)
      BTN showed 7 7 and won $7.62 ($3.62 net)


      BTN - 24/17

      Is this a bad board to Cbet? Is he folding any hands that he called with pre-flop?

      Should I just give up on turn instead of betting my weak Ace?

      i would bet flop smaller, around 1/2 pot as board is pretty dry.
      turn i would bet/fold for 1/2 pot again. often against a shove we are against AJ+, AT, sets, and sometimes combo draws, and are often crushed

      Hello 0744379,

      Rather just Check/Fold the flop instead or either if you CB then a lot smaller, no need to CB 3/4 in 3bet pot. Though otherwise what do you think he is raising you with on the turn that you have beat? Is there even a point to Bet the turn?

      Best Regards.
