      PokerStars - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      UTG: $37.20 (VPP 21 / PFR 14) [14 hands]
      CO: $37.44
      Hero (BTN): $25.00
      SB: $25.10 (VPP 17 / PFR 14) [67 hands]
      BB: $46.20

      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has T:spade: T:club:

      UTG raises to $0.87, fold, Hero calls $0.87, SB calls $0.77, fold

      Flop: ($2.86, 3 players) 2:club: 2:spade: 3:diamond:
      SB checks, UTG bets $1.88, Hero calls $1.88, SB calls $1.88

      Turn: ($8.50, 3 players) 8:diamond:
      SB checks, UTG bets $5.10, Hero raises to $22.25 and is all-in

      In this hand, I think SB and hero hand are quite obvious to the UTG raiser unless they got lucky with 33, so he will often bet the turn again. I would say he is often on overcards or a pocket pair, but even then, TT remains ahead often.

      I usually don't like shoving like that as I will probably isolate myself against better hands, but in this case, I would really hate to see the river. If he is indeed still bluffing, he will also be capable of shoving the river on any overcard.

      I also want to get rid of the second player in the hand who could decide to make a move on us.

      Do you think calling down is still the better option, for value and to play way ahead / way behind?

      board is so dry that I would like calling there a lit better. Usually players are not bluffing that often with just and overcards and their valuebetting range beats mostly your TT. If you think he would b/f JJ-AA then shove is good, but until you have that read I would just call and try to go cheap showdown

      best regards,
