      Alright so, some player with 4BB left in his stack goes all-in. I decide to call for set value (and because of the good position) in case someone else calls after me OR in case nobody does I seem likely to win with TT against someone who might be pushing any two just because.

      But that's not really important. BB calls too. I am happy to see the Flop: I have an OESD with one of my Tens, plus a made middle pair. Also, BB checks. However, on the Turn the BB bets after I complete my Straight.

      Here I think raising or even calling would eventually put me all-in on the River, so I decide to shove it already on the Turn for maximum protection, as a T or a are cards I don't want to see. He could be calling and betting with hands like AQ or QJ. So I decide worrying about BB being ahead of me isn't necessary as he is only beating me with KT here.

      ...This is, of course, my own train of thought.

      Any thoughts about it and the hand?
