      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10, $0.02 ante No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      CO: $26.08 (260.8 bb)
      BTN: $63.22 (632.2 bb)
      SB: $14.88 (148.8 bb)
      Hero (BB): $45.49 (454.9 bb)
      MP: $32.89 (328.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J A
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.30, SB folds, Hero raises to $1, BTN calls $0.70

      Flop: ($2.15) 3 5 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.40, BTN calls $1.40

      Turn: ($4.95) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $3.20, Hero folds

      $4.95 pot ($0.22 rake)
      Final Board: 3 5 5 3
      BTN mucked and won $4.73 ($2.31 net)
      Hero mucked J A and lost (-$2.42 net)

      villain is a reg pretty good one imo. 26/24/2.8
      he bets vs missed quite often, folds to cbet 75%
      3rd time i cbet into him in a 3bet pot i doubt he gives me cred

      but now on turn we probably have best hand unless he has a pair or fullhouse. if i call once i gota call twice though. by betting i dont make any A fold either unless i triple barrel. So ideas? :)

      On paired boards in 3b pots it's either a barrel or a c/f on the flop, as regs will know that we dosen't have that much in our range our pairs on this board is like 22-55 and TT+ A9s+ ATo+ KJo.

      Basically 2 options here: Whether you bet 2 streets here or C/F. You said he is a good reg, so he knows you can 3-bet other than made hands, too. He also has position so he might be on a float. So C/F or bet 2 streets as bluff, but I guess we are not in that good shape after he calls that flop.

      we are 3bet preflop, so If I cbet flop I always cbet turn to represent QQ KK AA
      . We hope villain will fold his Ax and medium pair hand (99 TT or maybe JJ).

      But I think the way you played this hand is not bad.

      I wouldn't bet this type of flop versus villain unless I plan to barrel multiple streets.

      Considering what you mentioned he may actually not fold pairs or even AQ unless we bet 3-streets which would get too expensive.

      Because of that I don't mind ck/folding the flop.
