      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, 9.
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, BB calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.24) 3, T, T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.15, BB calls $0.15.

      Turn: ($0.54) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.39, BB calls $0.39.

      Hero bets $0.86, BB raises to $1.92, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.18.

      On the turn his range was mostly Tx, 33-99, so I decided to 3barrel to make him fold his PPs.

      Hey Adsefghijk,

      Preflop is probably fine if BB has a reasonably high Ftsteal.

      Assuming villian has a high Ftsteal I'd just check fold this particular flop texture.

      3barrelling is not ridiculous, but I'd reserve the third barrel for a decent river card. You are not going to fold villain off PP's even on 6c river if he didn't already fold the turn (which is pretty likely imo). So, preferred option, c/f, 2nd best option is 2barrel and c/f river.

      But, it does depend on villains Ftsteal and Ftcbet(flop + turn) which is not given.
