      Well if you delay cbet here with 22 then I think it's the best line

      With 22:
      delay cbet > give up > Flop cbet IMO (unless opponent folds a lot to Flop cbets)
      We want to take down the pot right away and prevent hands like 89 from realizing their equity. We could also potentially bluff out stronger hands like 33/66/77

      With TT:
      betting turn doesn't achieve much. JX and QX is never folding, I don't really care about protecting either. with his 78s he is mostly drawing dead. I don't think an Ace or King on the River hurts us too much.

      This is because if the Ace or King improves him, he probably has a broadway. For example, KQ is already ahead of us in the first place. So is KJ. And we have 2 Ts, so we block AT and KT.

      I rather check Turn, and call a river bet on almost all rivers. If he pots an Ace or King on the River that would be tough. But if he half pots them then I would call and hope for the best.

      Hmm I like this line and logic better.
