      BB: $2.54 (50.8 bb)
      UTG: $2.50 (50 bb)
      MP: $5.02 (100.4 bb)
      CO: $0.87 (17.4 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $5.14 (102.8 bb)
      SB: $8.19 (163.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with T T
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.17, Hero raises to $0.40, SB folds, BB calls $0.35, CO calls $0.23

      Flop: ($1.22) 2 5 J (3 players)
      BB checks, CO checks, Hero bets $0.52, BB folds, CO calls $0.47 and is all-in

      Turn: ($2.16) Q (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($2.16) 2 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $2.16 pot ($0.10 rake)
      Final Board: 2 5 J Q 2
      BB mucked and lost (-$0.40 net)
      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.
