      Overview: I always get the feeling that i play TT (and other low pockets) incorrectly sometimes, and end up loosing a lot of money from it. Elephant confirms this phenomena. I'm down 80BB in 80 hands of TT. So I might start posting some of these hands from now on to see what I'm doing wrong.

      Hand 1: Overpair = bet/push. Or should you be more cautious with tens on a paired/drawey board?

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $4.65
      BB:
      $22.35
      MP2:
      $8.20
      MP3:
      $5.00
      CO:
      $11.20
      BU:
      $25.00

      0.1/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with T:spade: , T:diamond:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $1.00, BB calls $0.75.

      Flop: ($2.00) 7:spade: , 5:spade: , 7:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, BB raises to $3.75, Hero calls $2.15 (All-In), BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Turn: ($9.30) A:heart:
      River: ($9.30) 6:spade: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $9.30







      Hand 2: Bad idea to cbet TT on a board like this?

      both hands very standard. Actually paired boards are considered like the best possible boards for c-bets, so your TT is probably just on a small downswing :)

      Hello johnbeattie85,

      #Hand 1,

      An overpair is the nuts so I will go all-in on his reraise as well :)


      #Hand 2,

      Mp1 plays 45/17 so he can have more than only a King or a Seven. Just push this one and you are fine

      Well played!
      Gerv
