      CO 21/19/4.3/14.1/16/200hands

      Not sure about barreling this spot without equity.
      Betting once or three times seemed better than betting twice & giving up.

      I Don't think he can have too many strong hands in his range since sets are usually raising flop, or at least turn.
      Kind of tricky OTR since I don't know how often this improves him.

      once he just called turn I think he has a lot of Tx 9x hands, maybe some flush draws or a hand like QJ.

      J8 T7 97 are the only other hands that improve OTR & I doubt he has any of these in his range.

      Also I can rep BDFD :D

      CO: $25 (100 bb)
      BTN: $13.53 (54.1 bb)
      SB: $25 (100 bb)
      BB: $27.96 (111.8 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $31.21 (124.8 bb)
      MP: $25.35 (101.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A J
      Hero raises to $0.75, MP folds, CO calls $0.75, 3 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) 3 T 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.20, CO calls $1.20

      Turn: ($4.25) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.60, CO calls $2.60

      River: ($9.45) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $5.50, CO folds

      Results:
      $9.45 pot ($0.47 rake)
      Final Board: 3 T 9 4 7
      CO mucked and lost (-$4.55 net)
      Hero mucked A J and won $8.98 ($4.43 net)

      Flop: Not a great flop, but I think you have 2 overs + backdoors so it's fine.

      Turn: Very loose barrel. I don't like it. Your perceived bluffing range on this turn card is really wide, so many semi - bluffs. In villain's shoes I am never folding 9X here.

      River: This is a great card to barrel because you have spade flush draws way more often than villain.

      ok thanks, so would you only barrel turns that give us equity?
      Like any heart, or maybe J+?

      So if I'm understanding correctly, what you're basically saying is that on the turn it doesn't matter that I think villain's range is weak, because our perceived range is also pretty weak?
      ie: loads of draws.

      yes, you are perceived to be really wide here when you get the Turn. And I would bet a J and A (those are cards which improve you) and a heart. K and Q are bad cards, cos they coordinate the board and stuff like KQ KJ QJ are all improved.
