      Preflop: I am not squeezing here, if I am not willing to 5bet TT. It just plays very poorly in 3bet pots especially if it gets 3way. BB is tight and we don't mind him coming along to play a 4way pot. If he squeezes and he is aggro, we can easily just backraise all-in.

      Flop: Don't really like check/calling TT here cos it's not too strong. I don't think betting accomplishes too much as well, since he just floats you with AQ and bluffs you off your hand later on. We just end up folding out 88/77 type of hands.

      I prefer to check/fold here immediately. If he checks down and we win, good for us. if he bluffs us out of the hand, so be it. I just think vs his overall range, we aren't doing too well.

      River: I'm not sure what you are trying to accomplish here with this bet. Maybe you can explain what you are hoping to achieve?
