      This guy is a 25/22 reggish type of player stealing 38%

      Because he is stealing quite alot i decide to flat call here pre.

      OTF when he checks to me i just bet trying to take it down if he decided to give up. He cc. Now i hit my T.

      His cc is probably some middle pair type hand or draw like 8x, 87, 79, 99,77, so i decide to bet just around half pot OTT to keep those hands in the pot.

      I river the 2 pair so i decide to go for a small bet to get a crying call from maybe a worse T8,T6, 68, K8, K6. And he raises me. Im getting like 3:1 to make this call and i think he can raise me here with alot of 2pair type of hands, also i dont see him having a straight here too often. i dont think AQ will cc cc twice on this board. neither do i think Q9 will do that OTF.

      He might have some runner runner flush but if that is the case i think its a cooler.

      I make the call OTR since i think my hand can be best here a decent amount of the time. I don't see any point in raising since its unlikely worse will call on this board.

      What do you think of my play?

      I think I would have played it differently and checked back the turn to keep the pot small and hope to induce the bluff on river however as played I agree I don't like reraising and would probably make a crying call

      seems standard play. You can always 3-bet pf all your broadway hands against wide Sb opening range but if you don´t want to go too deep into 3-bet/4-bet wars then just calling is also fine.

      He would sometimes c/f there smt like 22-44 and Ax hands, so I´m fine taking stab on the pot. Also you get a lot of turn cards where you can barrel.
      I would also bet both turn and river for value, very unlikely he has there better hand than Tx and it should be easy b/c consider strength of your hand and bet size.

      Best regards,
