      Hello!

      According to the Starting Hands chart one should raise 4bb + 1bb per limper per default. Since I see a poster I go and raise to $0.25 (5bb)

      On the flop we make a normal 2/3 66% cBet. You cBet only 33% of the pot, not enough according to this rule but look it the other way: you do not get as much money as you want on the Flop

      The aim with TT on this kind of flop is to get all-in as soon as possible. So making a proper cBet on the Flop means you have to shove on the river as played

      Best regards,

      Gerv
