      Party, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $9.18 (91.8 bb)
      CO: $8.92 (89.2 bb)
      Hero (SB): $13.90 (139 bb)
      BB: $10 (100 bb)
      UTG: $10.56 (105.6 bb)
      MP: $9.35 (93.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with T T
      UTG calls $0.10, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.10, Hero completes, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.40) T 7 A (4 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, UTG checks, BTN bets $0.40, Hero raises to $1.25, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.85

      Turn: ($2.90) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2, BTN calls $2

      River: ($6.90) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $10.55 and is all-in, BTN folds

      This seemed like such a good play when I did it, but now it seems like I should have bet much less -- if at all.
      If I bet less, I might win some, but if he DOES win, I lose less.

      Can't decide even now.

      Hi Vorpal,

      Preflop: with such a strong hand we should raise preflop and try to isolate one of them.

      Flop: I'd ck/raise larger here especially since he potted the flop. We want max value from Ax/draws.

      Turn: I'd bet bigger here, no reason to make it any less than pot.

      River: If we would of bet bigger flop/turn we could of easily just shove river and get called by a lot worse.

      Like this, we left too much behind so villain can still fold Ax.
