      Full Tilt Poker, $0.10/$0.25 NL Hold'em Cash Game, 6 Players - Hand History Converter

      BB: $27.80
      UTG: $7.35
      Kruppe (MP): $29.70
      CO: $10.60
      BTN: $21.50
      SB: $18.90

      Pre-Flop: A:spade: A:diamond: dealt to Kruppe (MP)
      UTG folds, Kruppe raises to $1, CO calls $1, BTN calls $1, 2 folds

      Flop: ($3.35) 9:heart: 8:heart: 3:heart: (3 Players)
      Kruppe bets $3, CO folds, BTN calls $3

      Turn: ($9.35) 9:heart: 8:heart: 3:heart: [ 7:heart: ] (2 Players)
      Kruppe bets $5, BTN calls $5

      River: ($19.35) 9:heart: 8:heart: 3:heart: 7:heart: [ 5:heart: ] (2 Players)
      Kruppe checks, BTN checks

      I think he very often has a draw on the flop, and the turn completes nearly all draws, so I should just shut down.

      Nothing that calls the flop will fold to your turn raise I'm afraid. You have no hearts, CO has no hearts which makes it logical BTN has atleast a flushdraw when he calls flop. And trying to bluff someone of a made hand (any flush is the nuts on nl25) is bad for your stack on this limit :(

      Smaller flop bet could save some nickels, because the flop is decidedly ugly. Aces there are weak.

      You shutdown on the turn.

      I like your betsize on the flop, but no flush would fold on the turn (thatś why he called your bet on the flop :) )
      So c/f is the best option here.
