      I have 400 hands.
      Villain is 19/17 but steal like 70% from BTN and folds to many resteals.

      So there are some questions?
      1) Should i just call preflop?
      2) Is folding here correct?
      3) Any stenarios for shoving?

      MP: $11.95 (119.5 bb)
      CO: $6.87 (68.7 bb)
      BTN: $10.73 (107.3 bb)
      SB: $6.34 (63.4 bb)
      Hero (BB): $13.06 (130.6 bb)
      UTG: $3.10 (31 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T T
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.25, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.80, BTN raises to $2.25, Hero folds

      Results:
      $1.65 pot
      BTN mucked and won $1.65 ($0.85 net)



      Thanks guys

      1) If villain has a high Ft3bet, 3betting with TT can be problematic. If villain continues with JJ+, AQ+, you are basically throwing TT into the muck (turning it into a bluff). 3bet with hands like T8s where you don't have a profitable call anyway. (Exceptions in (3))

      2) Generally, yes, folding here is correct at 10nl.

      3) There are exceptions where you can jam your TT. It's somewhat rare you will find opponents against whom this is profitable at 10nl, but they do exist.

      First your opponent needs to be stealing wide and fighting back vs 3bets with a high percentage of 4bet bluffs. (Note that this will probably only occur if he perceives your 3bets to be somewhat light). Some players have 4bet ranges really heavily weighted towards bluffs, especially if you are 3betting light yourself. That's because if they do wake up with a monster their best play against a light 3better is to flat-call.

      You can then ship your TT. In fact you can sometimes ship hands like 77, or A5s. You expect to take the pot down so often vs their bluff heavy 4bet range. The times you do get called you still have reasonable equity vs their value range.

      Against these players 3betting a light value range with the intention of 5 bet shipping is actually a really strong play.

      +1.

      So thanks.

      Yeah the type of player you described that it is profitable to shove with TT....i don't know if i have ever met such on NL10SH. maybe i saw many who doesn't fold to 3bets buts non who fight a lot with 4 bets.

      Thanks guys.

      Hi Alan,

      my gameplan vs alan will be to abuse him with 3bet bluffs, and flat AQ and TT here. When he starts adjusting by 4bet bluffing, then I start 3betting TT and AQ for value.
