      The more I think about this hand the worse I feel, so I need to know if I should even consider the call when this situation arises in the future!

      This was the first hand I had played against this opponent, and the first time I had watched him play.

      I persuaded myself that the super over bet was weakness.
      I felt I was ahead on the flop, and did not think the 2 :heart: would have changed that.

      Known players:

      0.02/0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with T:spade: , T:diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.16, 3 folds, CO calls $0.16, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($0.38) 3:club: , 8:heart: , 5:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, CO calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($0.98) 2:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.70, CO raises to $7.72 (All-In), Hero calls $5.85 (All-In).

      River: ($15.25) 2:club: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $15.25

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two pairs, tens and deuces (Ts Td)
      CO shows a full-house, fives full of deuces (5h 5c)

      CO wins with a full-house, fives full of deuces (5h 5c)

      So how bad is the call?
      Should I ever consider the call in this situation?

      please don't post results.
      Without looking at them I'd say it's a clear fold on river.
      Look at his stats, you bet near pot on river and such a passive player shoves. Maybe he's bluffing but you only invested 1.16$.
      You are beat by: 88, 55, 33, 46, A4, JJ+
      Against 76s or other combodraws you are just slightly ahead.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,

      You'll be ahead there against some players but i doubt he is one of them. He plays very few hands, always very passively, i think for him to use a c/c c/shove line there he either has you crushed or he snapped - in like he had a sudden nervous breakdown - for some reason. Since his stack is still healthy i don't see why he would go insane all of a sudden, so i think your TT is no good very often, which means it's not worth the call.

      If he was some kind of 30/12/3 that just lost a big pot, i would call without thinking too much about it.

      Hope it helps.

      Thanks for the feedback guys.

      Just started using elephant, so I am still learning to interpret the figures. In all honesty I don't think I actually looked at his stats while playing this hand, just not used to doing it.
