      BTN: $4.99 41/31 agfactor 3.0 wts 42 hands 29

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with 8 :diamond: 6 :diamond:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.20, Hero raises to $0.80, BB calls $0.70, BTN calls $0.60

      Flop: ($2.40) T :spade: J :diamond: 6 :spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($2.40) 2 :diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $1.00, BTN folds, Hero raises to $3, BB calls $2

      River: ($8.40) Q :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $5.00, BB calls $4.25 all in

      preflop: BTN open raised 2bb, I thought he was weak and why not bluff him out

      flop: wet bord, hits the opponents ranges, so I don't cbet, after bb, and btn checked the flop I think they are weak here

      turn: I think the delayed cbet is better here, we can make them to fold 55,77,88,99,and some overcards that have 6 outs against our hand

      as played: BB can bet the turn with 55,77,88,99,and some overcards after our check, so I went for the semibluff

      river: after he called the turn raise, BB can have Jx, or some draws, maybe Tx with :diamond: draw, so I went for a bluff because Q :spade: is a scare card for him

      Hey staselu,

      Preflop is fine.

      I wouldn't cbet the flop either.

      Not sure I like your turn play. BB has a reasonably strong range for cold-calling your 3bet preflop. I don't think he is betting hands like 55/77 here multiway. I think it's far more likely he has an overpair, flush/straight-draw with overcards, a Jx, or a set. Against this range check/raise bluff is not great, although you do have diamond draw.

      River card may seem like a scare card but it also hits a lot of your opponents range. You've missed your draw, I'd just give up.
