      ok my first ever eval so go easy if i mess up the post format etc..



      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):
      $1.80
      MP1:
      $13.65
      MP2:
      $2.04
      MP3:
      $2.24
      CO:
      $1.27
      BU:
      $6.69
      SB:
      $3.27


      Preflop: Hero is BB with T, T.
      3 folds, CO calls $0.05, BU folds, SB raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.35, CO calls $0.35.

      Flop: ($1.2) 9, 3, J (3 players)
      SB bets $2.87, Hero folds, CO folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.2.




      2 questions:
      1/ 3bet chart says with TT to reraise.. but fold if reraised, steal chart says to resteal if a steal attempt is made (he was SB) BUT his bet size of 40c threw me totally ?( if i reraise x3.. = $1.20.. thats over half... and if over half = shove).. so should I have shove? ?

      I thought perhaps overplaying AA / KK / QQ?? so i didnt want to shove.. so I called if anything hoping for a set on flop..

      2/ he shoved... was i pot commited? should I have shoved? was i right to fold even though I did have a posibiliy of a straight if i hit runner runner..

      Hi,

      If you are confused , do not call. It's the worst move because you will make a lot of mistakes on the Flop

      Now this move with TT depends on statistics. If he is loose enough I like shoving myself otherwise folding is a fine play too

      Best regards,
      Gerv
