      Hero???
      Should i push here, or did i make an error in betting the turn giving villian a chance to reraise and push me off the hand or is it a go broke situation on the turn. At the time i had no info on villian but turns out he was loose agg playing something like 40/20 with a 3b of 11.5 over 70 hands. I think i had about 32% equity here.

      Results:
      $4.29 pot ($0.28 rake)
      Final Board: 9 A 8 T
      Hero mucked A J and lost (-$2.07 net)
      BTN mucked and won $4.01 ($1.94 net)

      Hey Gfm1975,

      I don't think you made a mistake barreling the turn here. Plan should probably still be to bet/fold given that all your outs are tainted (apart from straight-flush outs which may be blocked).

      However, if you feel uncomfortable bet/folding such a huge amount of equity it's a legitimate option to go into check/call mode on turn since you also have an ok bluff-catcher to go with your draw. You could bet/fold the Ax that don't have strong draws to go with them.

      Would it b auto broke if I had the A club rather than the J.
      Thanks

      Assuming you mean the A. If you hand this you could probably just think about smooth-calling turn vs raise and folding river unimproved.
