      Ok, so this guy had taken a bit of a beating on the table and had become a bit passive. I didn't want to re-raise him because there was a chance he might shove as he was getting bitched and outdrawn a lot. So I basically played the 10's for set value and told myself I would fold if I didn't see a 10 on the flop. However...the flop came pretty nice so I played way ahead/way behind check/call. He could have had a bigger pair but I was putting him on AK, AQ kind of hands. Did I play this wrong, should I have raised at some point?Let me know what you think.


      Thanks

      Hello Ghartman,

      Well, the problem here is already what kind of hands do you beat on the turn? :) I don't see really there being many. I'd rather fold my hand while even now knowing much about the opponent.

      Best Regards.
