      i decided to raise pocket 10s utg because it was a very tight table.

      If the table is very tight and someone calls your raise, why do you cbet on flop and turn?

      As you are aware that your preflop play was not SSS I will not say something about it. The Flop bet may by a cbet so its ok, but on the turn I don't see why you shouldn't c/f...

      (Please don't include the results the next time)

      I think is OK to push on the turn because you have flush draw second pair and you have only 2.75$ remaining in a 4.60$pot + chance to be ahead versus his range. To be breakeven you must win the hand in about one of 1:3.5 cases.

      TT is a standard raise from utg2 for me.

      My SHC tells me to fold TT in early position... And I think it's correct because there are so many players behind you... Or am I wrong?

      When there's a tight table I as well raise TT+/AQ+ from early.

      On the flop you have to play according to the articles, so you c-bet and on the turn you hit your FD and push, which is only correct way to play the hand.

      However, for beginners who do not know when tables are tighter or looser and how to adopt their play to such, then just stick to basic strategy and only play JJ+/AK+ from EP. But for advanced play this is nice hand.

      Hi Elad,

      Pre- -> OK
      Post-flop Bet more as in the c-bet to $1.5
      Turn: I would push this one and hope for a T or a in order to mostly beat Toppairs.

      Remove the results next time because they ain't interesting :)
      Best regards,
