      Hero (BTN): $76.99 (154 bb)
      SB: $81.93 (163.9 bb)
      BB: $35.82 (71.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A Q
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, SB raises to $4.25, BB folds, Hero calls $3

      Flop: ($9) T T A (2 players)
      SB bets $4.50, Hero calls $4.50

      Turn: ($18) Q (2 players)
      SB bets $11.23, Hero raises to $37.67, SB raises to $73.18 and is all-in, Hero calls $30.57

      River: ($154.48) J (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $154.48 pot ($3.00 rake)
      Final Board: T T A Q J
      Hero mucked A Q and lost (-$76.99 net)
      SB showed K J and won $151.48 ($74.49 net)

      VPIP: 20, PFR: 18, 3B: 9, AF: 5,0, Hands: 610

      In a spot like this, with 100BB and not deeper, would I be happy to go broke PF?

      Anyway, I'm not sure why I raised on the turn, did I just turn my hand into a bluff there?

      If I call turn, what do I do on such a river?

      raise/call pre-flop is fine. You can always 4-bet and basically fold out everything worse, but since you have position and his 3-bet range has worse Ax/Qx hands, then I think call is a little better.

      Postflop I would just call him down. On that river fold is fine, since backdoor flush got there and I don´t think players would bluff too often that river (also he has enough Kx and boats/flushes in his range that he would most likely valuebet).

      Don´t like your turn raise, since you fold out everything worse and only protecting against flushdraw (that would more likely just fold than shove)

      best regards,
