      Full Tilt, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, Rush, 6 Players

      MP: $7.14 (28.6 bb)
      CO: $11.49 (46 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $42.22 (168.9 bb)
      SB: $31.94 (127.8 bb)
      BB: $30.64 (122.6 bb) 23/13 (64h)
      UTG: $25.19 (100.8 bb) unknown

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with T T
      UTG raises to $0.70, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.70, SB folds, BB calls $0.45

      Flop: ($2.20) Q 7 A (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($2.20) 2 (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: ($2.20) K (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG checks, Hero checks

      Results:
      $2.20 pot ($0.11 rake)
      Final Board: Q 7 A 2 K
      Hero mucked T T and lost (-$0.70 net)
      BB showed K J and won $1.05 ($0.35 net)
      UTG showed K J and won $1.04 ($0.34 net)


      Preflop: call for set value vs tight UTG range.

      Postflop: my main question with this hand is, should I turn my TT into a bluff and stab at some point? By the river I am fairly sure that:
      (1) no-one has an A; and
      (2) I don't have the best hand at showdown (there are 2 villains so it's likely there is at least one K or Q out there).
      On the other hand, can we be sure a villain would fold 2nd pair if we stab river?
