      SB: $11.26 (112.6 bb)
      BB: $10.15 (101.5 bb)
      UTG: $10.61 (106.1 bb)
      Hero (MP): $9.85 (98.5 bb)
      CO: $10.30 (103 bb)
      BTN: $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with T T
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.35, CO raises to $1.20, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.85

      Flop: ($2.55) J 7 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.20, Hero calls $1.20

      Turn: ($4.95) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $2.50, Hero folds

      $4.95 pot ($0.22 rake)
      Final Board: J 7 4 Q
      Hero mucked T T and lost (-$2.40 net)
      CO mucked and won $4.73 ($2.33 net)

      This guy's 3bet from the co value was like 12% over 500 or so hands so from this i'm judging that i'm probably ahead of his range here. On the flop was it a mistake to check/call? should i have raised to put pressure on his bluffs. The flop didn't hit very much of his range

      oop you have imo two options: 3-bet to 3$ and play for stacks or call and play postflop.

      c/r flop is reasonable and should fold out all his air- although I think he would likely give up anyway if turn is blank. On the turn I would rather fold, since you should be behind more often than ahead:
      board: QJ73
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      TT 39.36% 903,312 2,268
      AK, JJ-AA 60.64% 1,392,276 2,268

      if you add some flushdraws and random hands that he would barrel on the turn then c/c can also be reasonable, but that also means sometimes making herocalls if river is blank

      best regards,
