      Hi,
      i know it would have been better to raise preflop, not just playing for set value...however, i feared the big stack guy w/ 4 BI behind me that's why i felt safer to fold on the flop. how would u have played this hand?

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $4.00
      UTG1:
      $4.48
      UTG2:
      $1.96
      MP1:
      $5.00
      MP2:
      $9.04
      MP3:
      $4.93
      CO (Hero):
      $5.19
      BU:
      $19.32
      SB:
      $3.50


      Preflop: Hero is CO with T, T.
      UTG1 calls $0.05, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.05, BU raises to $0.10, SB folds, BB calls $0.05, UTG1 calls $0.05, Hero calls $0.05.

      Flop: ($0.42) 2, 5, 8 (4 players)
      BB checks, UTG1 bets $0.10, Hero folds, BU raises to $0.30, BB folds, UTG1 calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($1.02) 9 (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $0.05, BU raises to $0.35, UTG1 folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.07.

      Hey!


      Why do you fear the deep stack behind you? You're not deep with him, so his effective stack when playing you is 100bb anyway ;)

      DEFINITELY raise pre. This hand is super uber strong. Don't limp that ever again :D

      As played: Definitely raise flop. You have an overpair and that's the kind of hand you can't fold when the pot is still 10bb big! You have the best hand a ton here! Just pot raise it. You'll still get called by 8x, fd, str8 draws, maybe even 5x depending on how bad the players are.

      Remember: value bet, value bet, value bet!!

      Cheers!
