      Just called the TT preflop as I was UTG but get 2 calls and BB checks, so 4 on the flop.
      BB bets so small , its like he just doesn't want to check, so I put in a raise to defend my hand hoping no-one holds a Queen , expecting to fold to a three bet.I get 2 callers.
      Turn Ace I'm way behind a lot of the others ranges so check , same on river.
      Any way to improve this? Could I have bet the river after the BB checked?

      Hello Chromehead,

      Preflop: TT is way too strong to just limp in. :P You can perfectly well raise the hand here.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, being in such a multiway pot I don't like the raise while you played it passively preflop. You ain't gonna make better hands to fold and at the same time just pay Qx type of hands. Just Call and reevaluate further streets.

      Best regards.
