      The pot was really big here so i decided to call for the 1 in 12 chance that i hit the ten. Was this the right choice? It looks like i might not have quite had the odds to call, but the pot WAS 3.1 times the size of my stack so i should have pushed instead?

      Sorry, i just don't know if this was a good way to do it or not.

      Push preflop, push flop, push turn and push river :)

      Preflop because there are 3+ limpers. As you can see, it makes you committed on any flop if you simply raise.

      On the flop because the pot is more than twice your stack, so you're committed.

      On the turn you still have 2 overcards and a straight draw, so enough outs to push this one profitably (but not really relevant because you should have pushed preflop and flop already).

      On the river you finally found the right button :D

      Well, just one thing: push with 3+ limpers directly. There's no point to make sucha raise when you're bloody commited anyway postflop.
