      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.106 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:spade: , A:diamond:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 raises to $0.15, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.45, 4 folds, UTG2 calls $0.30.

      UTG2 bets $0.55, Hero calls $0.55.

      Turn: ($2.07) 7:club: (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $1.25, Hero calls $1.00 (All-In), UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      River: ($4.07) T:spade: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $4.07

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG2 shows three-of-a-kind, tens (Kc Tc)
      Hero shows (As Ad)

      UTG2 wins with three-of-a-kind, tens (Kc Tc)

      The only reason I called the flop instead of raising it's because I think he'll donk some bluffs there, and by raising I'll make him fold them and only continue against TT+ perhaps, some flushdraws etc, depending on how good/bad of a player he is..

      (?) On the turn, 7 :club: doesn't change much and since I saw he's having a hand he's willing to play, I re-raised/shoved..

      (?) Is this well? I can't believe he hit another T :spade: on the river..

      Hey ::)

      He is a 12/10 tight player, what pure bluffs can he ever have here?
      If he semibluffs, you are happy to shove it in here because he will call due the pot odds he gets

      Now think about any turncard that falls, did you think about what you would do on a ? on a T? etcetera?

      I just shove because in case he has Tx on the Flop and the Turn is a Queen, well now it sucks for you because he is less likely to pay off
