      Hello K6ngsepp,

      Don't raise the flop, it's pointless move here. There ain't gonna be a lot worse hands which gonna continue and at the same time you may just isolate yourself against strong hands. Plus you wont know where you stand with our hand if he decides to 3bet you. Rather take pot control and reevaluate it on turn.

      Best Regards.

      These types of flops with T9, TJ etc... you gotta be careful with overpairs (I found out the hard way!), especially since it's a non-3B pot and with SPR way too high to commit. You're both reasonably deep too.

      He has lots of 2 pair combos, straights, sets, OESD, FD's in his limp/calling range...being OOP he needed to take the initiative to get his stack in.

      Good fold, although a raise wasn't really necessary, as Veriz says.
