      I have 100 hands on BTN
      He plays 42/3 and his steal % is low, too.

      The big button raise almost made me fold, but this is too good to fold pre.
      I figured TT+, maybe AQ+ but I wasn't too hopeful for that. I thought I should see a flop anyway.

      Party, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      MP: $34.34 (343.4 bb)
      CO: $3.09 (30.9 bb)
      Hero (SB): $11.74 (117.4 bb)
      BB: $13.39 (133.9 bb)
      BTN: $3.68 (36.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A J
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.35, BB calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.20) 4 K Q (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, BTN bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40, BB folds

      This small bet made me think that I was right about the TT+, and now I don't think he has a K or Q or he would bet bigger, so now I think he has TT or JJ and is worried about the K and Q.

      I just called because all I have is a gutshot and BD FD

      Turn: ($2) T (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.90, Hero calls $1.90

      So now I have a straight, and I'm hoping really does have the TT, and if he does, I don't want to push him off, so I waited a long time then checked..

      River: ($5.80) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $5.60, BTN calls $0.98 and is all-in

      The big questions:
      Should I have been in the pot at all?
      I always get worried when I get lucky that I was dumb and got lucky.

      Once in, should I have raised the turn?
      I didn't really check how much he had behind. Had I seen how small it was, I probably would have.
