      CO mucked A A and lost (-$12.49 net)
      SB showed 4 K and won $39.42 ($25.17 net)
      Hero mucked 9 A and lost (-$14.25 net)

      CO 15/8/65
      SB 56/16/163

      I thought turn c/c was bit weak.
      I didn't have position so I tried to double barrel.

      However, this turn card was not good for bluff so how should I do?

      I think it's fine to bet Flop bet Turn. You got unlucky that CO was slowplaying preflop here. Basically we look ultra strong when we bet the Turn into two other players so I think it's good to have some combo draws in our range as well.

      Should we bet the River? I don't think so. We do have some showdown value vs worse draws from SB, and anyway the pot is protected by the shortstack so shoving to fold out a third party doesn't seem like a very good idea.
