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

      Hero (SB): $50 (100 bb)
      BB: $129.58 (259.2 bb)
      MP: $16.11 (32.2 bb)
      CO: $56.50 (113 bb)
      BTN: $50.96 (101.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A K
      2 folds, BTN raises to $1, Hero raises to $4.25, BB folds, BTN calls $3.25

      Flop: ($9) 7 J 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $5, BTN calls $5

      Turn: ($19) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $10, BTN calls $10

      River: ($39) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $30.75 and is all-in, BTN calls $30.75

      Anon table.

      BTN looked like a TAG on small sample.

      Is this a good spot for triple barreling? His range is quite capped, sometimes JJ hits, but top of his range is probably AJ...
      I thought that with a river push I can make him fold 88-TT, even most Jx hands.

      It could be good. I really like bluffing River especially on this heart to rep the flush. I think he should be folding many of his baby flush draws on the turn especially when the board pairs. but he may stick around with many JX and 88-TT on the Turn so I think betting River is mandatory.

      But anyway if I bet turn it's usually to shove, even on blank rivers.

      With that said, I think this is a very villain-dependent spot. I'll look at Turn and River Fold to cbet, as well as WTSd to decide whether I should shove here.

      You pretty much picked the best hand in your range to use as a 3barrel bluff. So even if you just keep using AhX as a default 3barrel bluff hand, I think it's fine.

      Thanks, he showed K:hQ, but I think his turn call was quite bad (or strange at least), so I had to reevaluate his solid TAG image... :) It's nice to see though, that you agree with the play, cause I also felt it was good, despite the result.
