Erm... not to min-raise UTG to begin with. Raise to 200, limp, fold, just do SOMETHING other than the min-raise.

Oh, and bet this flop too. Gives you a much clearer idea of where you are in the hand, which as this point you have no idea and ended up folding the best hand.

Nice call by scagno aswell. !!

Hmmm, this is not really my home forum, but let me take a few shots:

1) It's poor style to post everybody's handles except for you own. Use the hand converter instead.

2) As already said, don't min-raise. Ever. Limp or put in a real raise.

3) Dont CR a low flop with a pair of TT. Imagine it's checked, and turn comes A, K, Q or J ... erh? Bet out - two thirds of the pot (t250) is a good start.

4) If you're CR'ing do it more than half pot against two opponents. You're only charging the first one t250 to call a t775 pot ... and if he calls the second one is NEVER going to fold.

5) What did you put him on that made you fold? A call of t50 in a t425 pot followed by a re-re-raise all-in? No hands here make sense. If you're too scared to play TT as overpair for all of your chips here you shouldn't have CRd in the first place.

Thx for ur answers, and ok - no more miniraises with such hands. My intention was to mix up my game, not acting the same way with the same kinds of hands - but it backfired on me.

And I do regret letting out only my own handle, for the record it is..
