      SB: $50 (100 bb)
      BTN: $64.91 (129.8 bb)
      MP: $62.26 (124.5 bb)
      Hero (CO): $127.29 (254.6 bb)
      BB: $69.85 (139.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 6 6
      MP raises to $1.50, Hero calls $1.50, BTN calls $1.50, SB calls $1.25, BB folds

      Flop: ($6.50) 6 9 T (4 players)
      SB checks, MP checks, Hero bets $4.63, BTN calls $4.63, 2 folds

      Turn: ($15.76) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $9.98, BTN calls $9.98

      River: ($35.72) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      $35.72 pot ($1.78 rake)
      Final Board: 6 9 T A K
      BTN mucked 9 A and lost (-$16.11 net)
      Hero showed 6 6 and won $33.94 ($17.83 net)

      BTN 23/22/239 af 3.4 raisecb 0

      now I think fd would raise flop and turn raised.
      and there was a few straight draw.

      If so, should I barrel river?

      Hi Gonchan,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: How would you expect button to play his draws in a situation like this (you mention that he would play them aggressively, at least some)? He does seem aggro but our line looks like strength (betting into 3 ppl on a drawy board) so we can expect some draws to just call rather than play aggressive (but combo draws we can expect to raise often).

      The As is good because it reduces the number of draws he can have considerably and since all other broadways draws would have at least a gutshot I'd expect those to consider raising the flop. This leaves very few combos of actual flushes there so a bet on the river would be fine. We can even bet 1/3 pot to induce because that Kx could be a scare card for his 1p hands.
