      Preflop: Hero is UTG with T T
      Hero raises to $1.50, 2 folds, BTN calls $1.50, 2 folds

      Flop: ($3.75) 9 J A (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.50, BTN calls $2.50

      Turn: ($8.75) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $5, BTN calls $5

      River: ($18.75) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $10, Hero folds

      Results:
      $18.75 pot ($0.90 rake)
      Final Board: 9 J A K K
      Hero mucked T T and lost (-$9 net)
      BTN mucked and won $17.85 ($8.85 net)


      There were many guys who call flop fold turn on this session and K seemed scare card so I chose to second barrel.

      However, this flop was not good for float so my FE was low so c/f was fine?

      Hello,

      I want to think about the flop more deeply so I have a couple of questions here for you.

      What is your preflop range and what kind of hands you have here - you can categorize them as very strong (two pair +), strong (top pair), weak made hands (Jx/TT), very weak hands (such as PP) and draws of course.

      What is his possible range and how does it look - try to apply the previous think for his range and we can decide on whether or not betting the flop is good here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I was UTG so tight range 66+,ATs+,KQs,AJo+,KQo.

      if so

      very strong 18.5% strong 27.5% weak 6% very weak 18% strong draw 4 %
      weak draw 16%

      his range would be

      AQs~ATs,KQs,TT~55

      if so
      very strong 10.5 strong 27.3 weak 54.5 draw about 9%

      he had about 60% weaker range and I was oop so I think I should bet

      That's good although you missed KK/QQ from your range that would give you the missing 10% (if you add up the percentages you will result 90%).

      All in all, he has a weak range here so betting is going to be fine.

      On this rundown however, I would look forward to play bet/bet/bet because he is going to have trouble calling the river with anything but a flush.

      I think some Ax mostly, probably a hand like QJ/QT (if he has those) but even with QT it would be quite hard for him to call a river bet just because he is bluff catching.

      In my opinion bet is acceptable if only we plan to barrel most river cards because most of his hands wouldn't succeed calling three streets.

      hmm, I still don't understand why triple barrel is fine.

      weak pair or some pair+draw would fold on turn so when I get called on turn, his range seems not weak.

      Because we are having quite a strong range here overall (and not him by flatting preflop) so we can successfully represent a lot of strong hands on the river and make him fold.
      This unfortunately won't happen on the turn so if we are planning to bet turn and give up river I would suggest giving up on the turn.
