      BTN: $60.88
      SB: $50.23
      BB: $50.75
      UTG: $28.34
      Hero (MP): $78.21
      CO: $70.76

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is MP with T :diamond: T :club:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $1.50, 1 fold, BTN calls $1.50, SB calls $1.25, 1 fold

      Flop: ($5.00) 2 :club: 6 :diamond: 9 :heart: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $3, BTN calls $3, SB calls $3

      Turn: ($14.00) 2 :spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $7, BTN calls $7, SB folds

      I don't feel like most solid players will call with worse here, how should I play the remainder of this hand?

      River: ($28.00) A :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $16.50, Hero folds

      Hi Raknyo,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: BTN may have some 77-88, 9x but most of the time he will have hands like TT-JJ (maybe QQ) that don't 3-bet (after he calls the turn).

      So I agree with your line. There's not much you can really do unless you want to turn your hand into a bluff and hope you can get him to fold those JJ. Of course he can also have some full houses.
