      Preflop: OK.
      Flop: OK but wouldn't be a mistake to fold here. Depends what are his stats and with what can he do that. Could it be that he is raising you here with flushdraw or just a straight draw?
      Turn: I'd play here Check/Call and revalue river, I do not like to raise here after he raised you on flop.
      River: If he bets again then it will be hard to to call here, mostly we are beaten. You will need some reads on him to make the call profitable.

      I raised the turn because he's a midstack and just calling would pretty much commit me anyway, and because I wanted him to get it in on the turn with a flushdraw instead of getting away on the river.

      He showed down TT. I was baffled.

      I think he was unknown, I'm not sure.. stats are a huge part of how I play and I will start to note down stats when I note down the hand, so far I've been too lazy to look up opponent and his stats before posting every hand.. :)

      I am folding on the flop, because you are never really ahead. Either you are slightly ahead or way behind. If he is bluffing or semibluffing frequently though I like your line.

      Best regards,
