      Villain seemed tight after 17 hands (played 12/12/17), so I decided to call TT in position and play against their whole range. On flop he bet only 1/2 pot so I thought overcards most likely, i decided to call. On turn I decided to raise and take it down, but villain 3betted me with some wierd sized small 3bet, that left me with about 1:5.6 pot odds... i just couldn't fold.. on the river came Ace and villain made 2/3 pot bet, so that seemed pretty clear fold.
      Was my play somewhat correct on flop and turn?

      A is more of a blank there. A6 had you beat already, A8 doesn't 3bet turn so as played on flop and turn, river is a call.

      Your reasoning for raising the turn is very messed up and that's what got you into trouble imo.

      Hello Veeziits,

      Don't like the raise on turn at all. You are just making a lot better hands to continue and worse ones to fold. Rather take pot control and Call. Even if you raise then you practically have to fold to the 3bet, since he is never 3betting you there with a lot worse holdings, most likely strong made hand.

      Best Regards.

      FYP. :f_biggrin:

      Usually when you bet/raise it's for value or bluff. Here you are way ahead/way behind vs most opponents with your holding. Raising will just make him fold 77, 99, 8x and bluffs and continue with better made hands.
