      Well if you think his raising range is quite wide you can certainly shove over expecting him to call it off with smaller overpairs with or without a diamond and stuff.

      The problem is that when you're not sure you might be in really bad shape with TT because of possible overcards to your pair. If you had AA, somebody with a flushdraw would only have flushdraw outs, here you can be up against stuff like a pair with the nut flushdraw which you're doing poorly against even if you're ahead and sometimes you're just drawing stone dead.

      General consensus is that it's just not worth felting it unless you know that villain can raise/call there with hands you're doing great against, or he's crazy enough to raise/fold all the time or something.

      Hope it helps.
