      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J, A.
      5 folds, CO raises to $0.75, BU folds, Hero raises to $2.76, BB folds, CO calls $2.01.

      Flop: ($5.77) 3, 6, 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.24, CO calls $3.24.

      Turn: ($12.25) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.08, CO raises to $33.49, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $19.33.

      Villan is 24/12, 2.6 ag over 250 hands

      I think 3 betting is OK.
      On the flop I planned to go bet/broke. I have decent equity with the FD + the A.
      I think on the flop he has like 88+/AQ+. Maybe 77/66 cause we were realy deep.

      After he just calls I think we can remove 66 and the smaller pairs from his range, cause he probably would raise that. AQ+ is probably out too.

      Now on the turn I add a gutshot.
      What would be the best line here?
      When I did bet I thought my equity was great + He definetly can fold better hands, like TT/JJ.
      But that just sucked, cause when he shoved I didn't have enouth equity agaist his range.

      I think you played it ok.
      On the turn you have 9 outs for the flush + lets say 3 for the A (assuming he has over pair). So 12 outs in total that gives you 1/3 odds.

      You have to call 26 for a 52 pot so 1/2. The implied odds are tiny since he has 4 or 5 $ left.

      In the end you dont have the odds to call. Good fold.

      Yep, I did the math.

      I just don't know if it was a good bet in the first place. c/f turn better?

      Other way to play the hand would be to c/r flop, what about that?

      I wouldn't 3bet pre with AJs that deep. It just sucks to play oop with a hand as weak as that in 3bet pot.

      As played I'd propably cbet flop and cbet turn the way that I could call his raise for my presumed 15 outs. If there's some history with villain in 3bet pots, I might go for c/r on turn but never ever on flop.If you c/r flop, your hand looks exactly like what you have: a big draw.

      I like c/rai on the turn
      He would often bet there with one pair hands and then he would likely fold them to shove, since you´re quite deep
      And if he checks back then you can take free card and maybe improve your hand
      If you bet then I think b/c is better than b/f, since he can easily shove there draws

      What kind of draw can we put him on?
