      Do you think i should have folded? Now when i review my session, i think calling there was a mistake, because obv my only chance on the river was to chop. He's not going crazy with a straight or just a ten.

      When you lead out on the flop just pot it.

      As played on the turn go ahead and check/raise, you want to get all the money in against stuff like QJ and it's going to be really hard out of position on the river.

      As played on the river it's really gross, that said I don't believe villain raises the flop and bets the turn with just Tx too often, so I'd say we're looking at 88/T9/TT quite often. Either you believe villain is capable of totally not realizing how bad a straight actually is on that board, in which case you should still jam, or you do think he'd get scared with a straight, in which case you try and find a will-powered fold.

      Hope it helps.
