      BB: $53 (106 bb)
      UTG: $54.95 (109.9 bb)
      MP: $50.75 (101.5 bb)
      CO: $75.98 (152 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $55.29 (110.6 bb)
      SB: $50.25 (100.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with T:club: A:club:
      UTG calls $0.50, MP folds, CO raises to $2, Hero calls $2, 3 folds

      Flop: ($5.25) 8:club: 9:club: J:club: (2 players)
      CO bets $2.50, Hero calls $2.50

      Turn: ($10.25) 3:club: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $5, CO calls $5

      River: ($20.25) 7:diamond: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $11, CO calls $11

      CO is 46/26, 44% agg. freq., fold to 3bet 0(3), 99 hands

      Preflop, i think, both 3bet for value and call are ok options. What is better?

      On the flop, i think just calling is better. He is aggresive and might barrel.

      On the turn, perhaps, i should bet bigger vs. this opponent? If he has a flush or a set he is probably not folding to one bet anyway.

      On the river, i think my sizing is good?

      Flop: I almost always slowplay nut flush here unless villain bets really small on the Flop and then you would have to raise to build the pot.

      Turn: Ok not a great card but I guess you can bet 6.50 here, I don't expect him to check/fold a one card flush on the Turn.

      River: I think you can use 2 different bet sizes now. You either target Kc/Qc, or you target any club.

      So you should either bet close to pot (19$) or smaller, like half pot (9.50).
