      CO showed 9 7 and lost (-$0.87 net)
      Hero mucked T T and won $2.06 ($1.19 net)


      Villain is 21/21/13 A.F 7.0 over 72 hands.

      There are so many short stacks and mid stacks in Speed it's really quite difficult to adjust to them.

      PF: I don't really know how to play here. I would gladly 3-bet shove vs CO & his 17bb stack. But I'm really worried about the blinds behind me. A cold call or even 4-bet means my TTs is often no good. So I also do not really want to 3-bet too huge.

      As played, I bet around less than 1/2 pot to put CO all in as he can call me w worst.

      Hi cheekopeh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I would cbet enough to put CO in and the rest looks fine. I don't like checking back with two people in the pot and we can't really fold to CO anyway.
