      Hero (BTN): $33.15 (132.6 bb)
      SB: $46.45 (185.8 bb)
      BB: $27.44 (109.8 bb)
      UTG: $25 (100 bb)
      MP: $12.79 (51.2 bb)
      CO: $37.22 (148.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A 9
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, SB calls $0.50, BB calls $0.35

      Flop: ($1.80) 6 4 7 (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.25, Hero raises to $1, SB folds, BB calls $0.75

      Turn: ($3.80) T (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.75, BB folds

      $3.80 pot ($0.17 rake)
      Final Board: 6 4 7 T
      Hero mucked A 9 and won $3.63 ($2.03 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$1.60 net)

      I think my bet looks strong on the flop so I was thinking that I might get enough folds from maybe a 7x or 6x but this board does hit their ranges a lot better than it hits mine I think. In looking at this hand again I don't particularly like barreling because there are a lot of pair plus draws in his range but it is questionable whether he'll continue with straight draws. Barrelling turn will get him off 7x hands i think plus i do block straights and have the gut shot draw for insurance. not sure though

      again no solid reads SB was playing 19/6 over 31 hands but don't think this is indicative

      I would just give up on the Flop. You have no equity and this texture sucks for bluffing with 0 equity.

      I think BB will often minbet/call your Flop raise, and also you need to worry about SB having something as well. I think the Turn barrel is also kind of spewy. Don't expect too much fold equity here vs many fishes.
