      His bet pre-flop looked weak so i decided i would raise my TT..

      Once i hit my set the only worry i had was a runner runner and was pretty sure i was ahead at this time...

      Open raising to 3,5 BB isn't weak at all. One of the PS coaches even open raises just 3 BB's, so I wouldn't reraise with TT. Nice hand postflop.

      He raised from UTG to $1.70 which is just over 1.5 BB which is a weak raise imo.. if he raised to $2-$2.50 i would only call for set value.. not raise him..

      also i re-raised to go heads up with him, if i flat called then most likely 1 or 2 others will also join the pot..

      UTG raise was normal- I would always open 3,5xBB
      So I like calling more for set value.
      Nothing to do on the flop, If he has higher set, then fine, but maybe AK, AA would also push here.
