      Few Thoughts:
      - MP1 had made a few crazy pushes while I was waiting for the table and lost a good deal of his stack so I put him on a pretty loose open push range.

      - No real reads on CO.

      - Preflop I had decided to call the push with TT assuming his range was way behind TT. However with CO in the hand I was unsure whether to push-protect or to just call and see the flop.

      - Flop looks pretty good for TT and his check makes me think he hasn't hit so I bet out to protect.

      - Turn is a brilliant card spiking my set and then it is just a matter of getting the money in.

      Note: Crazy pushers hand hidden below:
      He had 22 for a set of twos. Meaning he was essentially coinflipping or dominated as he pushed. And he got very lucky. And then hideously unlucky on the turn.
