      Had upswing, so I thought I would play looser.

      Known players: (for a description of vp$ip, pfr, ats, folded bb, af, wts, wsd or hands click here)      

      0,05/0,10 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.8 by www.pokerstrategy.cc.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J:club: , T:club:
      UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 calls $0,10, MP1 folds, Hero raises to $0,50, MP3 folds, CO calls $0,50, 3 folds, UTG+2 calls $0,40.

      Flop: ($1,65) 7:club: , 8:diamond: , 4:diamond: (3 players)
      UTG+2 bets $0,50, Hero calls $0,50, CO folds.

      Turn: ($2,65) 9:spade: (2 players)
      UTG+2 bets $1, Hero raises to $11,28 (All-In), UTG+2 folds.

      Final Pot: $14,93

      Got 2 callers and UTG bet out to me. Bet was so tiny, that I decided to call and maybe I hit my straight^^. I pushed turn because I hoped that he has 2 pair, maybe set, maybe he was on the flush draw and there might be a lot scary cards on the river and I don´t want to call his push.

      adjust me if I'm wrong, but as far as I know, JTs from MP is a claer fold.

      Even from CO it's Raise 0/Fold

      And the Call on The Flop, imo is wrong, too.
      you've got 4 outs + overcards and the CO can still act behind you!
      you've even got to discount your outs, because of the possible flush(draw)
      On the Turn I would reraise to 3.5$, wich gives him wrong odds to call with a flushdraw, but he maybe calls with a weaker Hand wich folds against the push, like a bad played overpair.

      Agree with Chiller3k

      preflop: fold
      flop: fold
      turn: fold....oh wait....raise to $4

      Why did you play JT from MP?

      Hi Kaitz20!

      As I already mentioned in the cash games discussion board: Don't play differently while you are having an upswing or downswing. Always try to play your A-game!

      Concerning your hand: I agree with Chiller3k and gutshotstraightdraw: fold preflop, fold on the flop and don't bet so much on the turn.

      Good luck at the tables!
