      no hud, speed,
      solid reg (22/18)

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      Hero ($12.61)
      BB ($5.46)
      CO ($0.94)
      BTN ($19.40)

      Dealt to Hero T:spade: T:diamond:

      fold, BTN raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $1.10, fold, BTN calls $0.80

      FLOP ($2.30) A:spade: Q:heart: 7:diamond:

      Hero checks, BTN checks

      TURN ($2.30) A:spade: Q:heart: 7:diamond: Q:club:

      Hero bets $1.20, BTN calls $1.20

      RIVER ($4.70) A:spade: Q:heart: 7:diamond: Q:club: 3:diamond:

      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Hero shows T:spade: T:diamond:
      (Pre 67%, Flop 10.4%, Turn 4.5%)

      BTN shows A:club: 5:club:
      (Pre 33%, Flop 89.6%, Turn 95.5%)

      BTN wins $4.39

      I'm mixing it up with 3b to $1 and $1,10. I do it a bit bigger since we're deeper.

      Flop is not the best especially having in mind his calling 3b range - strong Ax and definitely many Qx. Was thinking of cbetting but I didn't see myself barreling no T so I decided for c/f.

      T is Q and I know I can't represent super strong range after c flop (or slowplaying a monster of course) but maybe he does have some smaller PP? Should I just c/f or c/c T? If I c 2 times he might take a stab with Kx hands. Lower PP probably just c behind.

      R is c/f.

      Next time just cbet and then give up?

      Preflop 3betting is good.

      I like checking the flop.
      We are not likely to make better hands to fold - apart from JJ, and the rest of the PP would love to check down.

      As played on the flop, on the turn I prefer check/folding as well.

      On the river is fine.
