      BTN: $1.82 (91 bb)
      SB: $6.34 (317 bb)
      Hero (BB): $2.30 (115 bb)
      UTG: $5.13 (256.5 bb)
      MP: $1.96 (98 bb)
      CO: $3.26 (163 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A K
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.06, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.18, BTN calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.37) 8 A 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.22, BTN calls $0.22

      Turn: ($0.81) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.42, BTN calls $0.42

      River: ($1.65) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      had 45 hands on villain 35% fold to 3bet. My thoughts were he would shove if he had the flush on the river not bet 50c. Also being a 3bet pot i thought it would be harder for him to have a flush draw. i thought he may play the same with AJ/AQ with the bet on the river to get AK/AQ to fold?

      Hi DrRaab,

      Preflop: I would 3-bet larger than just 3x being OOP and against a potential fish.

      Postflop: I think that you are better off betting the river yourself for pure value versus pairs, especially Ax that may be scared and checks back.
