      Hero shows three of a kind, tens(T T).

      BB wins with two pairs, aces and kings(K A).
      Hero wins with three of a kind, tens(T T).

      Was it a little spewy to call his shove here? Straight is possible on the flop with AJ, and flush draw got there on the turn. His flop call looked like a made hand though which the turn card probably didn't improve, so I called. Was this thinking right?

      Hello numbnutter,

      Well, look at your Bet size which sometimes may even induce a Raise. But if you are going to Bet then also you should plan to play for the stacks. Another possibility would be to Check behind and reevaluate it on the river.

      Best Regards.
