      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      BTN: $187.16 (374.3 bb)
      SB: $55.73 (111.5 bb)
      BB: $58.09 (116.2 bb)
      Hero (MP): $50 (100 bb)
      CO: $54.28 (108.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with 9 J
      Hero raises to $1.50, CO folds, BTN calls $1.50, SB folds, BB calls $1

      Flop: ($4.75) 7 A T (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $3.25, BTN calls $3.25, BB calls $3.25

      Turn: ($14.50) 6 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $9, BTN calls $9, BB raises to $22, Hero calls $13, BTN folds

      River: ($67.50) 3 (2 players)
      BB bets $31.34 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Anon table.

      Both BB/BTN looked TAGgish on small samples.

      Is it OK to barrel turn even 3way? I dont think that they will have a strong hand very often, cause they'd likely raise it on the flop multiway on a drawy board like this... Plus I still have good equity, but no showdown-value, and with barreling I can put pressure on their weaker, TP or draw hands.
      After getting chRaised, I cant do much but call based on odds.

      I like betting the turn but your sizing doesn't rep a great value hand imo. I would bet somewhat bigger and you should always think about river here because turn bet gets called very often imo so if you want them to fold some weak Ax you have to bet river as well.

      Vs raise, I completely agree, just purely odds play.
