      I know my preflop decision might me questionable. i just found hard to fold TT against such a donkraise. Thought I had good chances of having a better hand anyway, so I just raised. Was that a mistake? How about my postflop play? Did I bet too much on the flop? Should I have bet on the turn? The player is unknown for the record.

      You played that hand very standard to me and good.
      3-bet pf with TT is preferable, since his stack size is small , he would open with wider range and would also call with worse hands
      Although there are one overcard I think flop is easy b/c and you´re pot committed on the turn, so I also like shove
      He would call you down with worse hands
