      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.20 BB (5 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      SB ($23.94)
      BB ($20)
      Hero (UTG) ($24.90)
      MP ($13.74)
      Button ($79.20)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A, 2
      Hero bets $0.70, 1 fold, Button calls $0.70, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.70) 10, 7, 10 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.20, Button raises $4.40, Hero raises $7, Button calls $3.80

      Turn: ($18.10) 10 (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button checks

      River: ($18.10) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button bets $70.30 (All-In), Hero calls $16 (All-In)

      Total pot: $50.10

      Results below:
      Button had 9, 10 (four of a kind, tens).
      Hero had A, 2 (full house, tens over sevens).
      Outcome: Button won $101.90


      Villain plays 22/17, raises 20% of cbets (54) so he does this with a lot of semibluffs in his range. I wouldn't see him raise with 77 and Tx is most unlikely.

      What do you think of the small flop raise to have a shove left on turn? I think he's calling me there with JJ/QQ or a FD.

      I don't think I have a lot of FE on turn so I decide to check, I don't know if this is good because he can shove and I don't have the odds to call, plus the board is really scary, so actually I'm giving up on turn.

      There's a FH on the river. I thought he wanted to get me off a split pot so I called. He 3bets 6% in BB so I figured he actually would have 3betted QQ/JJ (my utg range is about 15% so not that tight) and he probably wouldn't have called 99/88 on flop, but maybe he plays it tricky. In retrospect I absolutely hate the river calll.

      Since you can´t win on the river I think better is to fold. He can sometimes show you bigger overpairs than TT+ even if he turns his 88/99 hand into bluff, you still would going to loose.
      Not sure really your 3-betting flop. You then have to call shove and T9s, JTs, QTs, 77 might all be in his raising range+ you then only win against T9s and KQs, KJs (if he raises also these hands on the flop):

      board: Td7dTs
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      8d9d, KdJd, KdQd, T9s, JTs, QTs 59.98% 5,331 27
      Ad2d 40.02% 3,552 27

      But since you generally have 40% equity+ you can force out bluffs or hand like 88/99 I think 3-bet/call flop is fine.
