      Hero mucked J 8 and lost (-$16.81 net)
      BTN mucked and won $32.94 ($16.13 net)

      What do you think? Is this a good spot for a third barrel? I was happy for my + draw on the turn but then it busted on the river.
      Anyway... I think he has an overpair most of the time and the river is a pretty good bluffing card in this situations... also according his stats, he's able to fold for a third barrel.

      Flop: I think the Flop bet is acceptable with 2 overs + backdoor flush draw. I don't expect Ace high to float you so often in a 3way pot and besides as the PFR we can rep the most 5X hands here (maybe K5s, A5s, 56s, 57s, 45s)

      Turn: Standard 2nd barrel, that's why we bet the Flop right?

      River: I think it's fine to barrel the River. In a headsup situation I would usually give up on this river cos AX is usually in villain's c/c range on the Turn. But given the 3way dynamic I think villain usually folds AX at some point in time so this makes the River card better for our range compared to his (since we would often barrel our over+gutshot here on the Turn).
