My Thought Process
Now that I am looking back at my hand, should I have fold after the flop shown? The BTN could have had Ace or any high cards because he called my raise. However, I decided to bet-fold strategy - if BTN calls my bet on the flop, I will fold. However, after seeing another heart in the community cards, I continued my aggressiveness by the possibility of flush draw. Was my play good?

UTG: 243 BB
Hero (MP): 370.5 BB
CO: 51.5 BB
BTN: 83 BB
SB: 134 BB
BB: 80 BB

SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:heart: J:heart:

fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, BTN calls 3 BB,

Flop: (7.5 BB, 2 players) A:heart: 9:spade: T:diamond:
Hero bets 5.5 BB, BTN calls 5.5 BB

Turn: (18.5 BB, 2 players) 6:heart:
Hero bets 13.5 BB, BTN ???

Hey aznhaxor,

I like your play on both flop and turn. You can get some better hands to fold and you build a pot for the case you hit your hand OTR. Barreling as long as you have equity to improve/make your hand, even when you're OOP is definitely almost always going to be a +EV strategy even when your opponents are not happy to fold that much. The nice thing about this one is that most of your outs are well hidden through the backdoor.
