      Hero (MP): $48.59 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 16, 3B: 6, AF: 3.0, Hands: 9544

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is MP with J :club: J :spade:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $1.50, CO calls $1.50, BTN calls $1.50, 2 folds

      Flop: ($5.25) 9 :diamond: 7 :diamond: 9 :heart: (3 players)
      Hero bets $3.77, CO calls $3.77, BTN folds

      Turn: ($12.79) 5 :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $15.00, CO calls $14.48 all in

      River: ($41.75) A :spade: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      I think bet/bet/bet is best vs this guy with this stack? What sizing is best? Bigger on the flop and push turn, 3 smaller bets, or as played?

      Hey AchillesBG,

      I like this hand as played.

      By overbetting the turn you avoid negative freerolls. I.e villain doesn't only put the rest of his stack in when his draw improves to beat your hand but fold the rest of the time.

      It's true you could get the chips in on the turn easier by betting larger on the flop, but I like your bet-sizing as it is. You wouldn't want to blow opponents off their draws on this paired board if they were worried about reverse implieds etc.
