Default 10/20NL, TPTK against a half stack

Villain in this hand is 32/6/2. Don't know enough to comment on his postflop play. My table image is pretty TAG.

Villain has $1091 to start and I cover. One limper. I make it $80 in the SB w/ A [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]K [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]. Villain calls from BB. Limper calls.

Flop A [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]8 [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]T [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]

I bet $200. Villain minraises to $400. Limper folds. I call.

Turn is T [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]

I check. Villain bets $300. I go all-in for $331 more.

Can anyone find a fold at any point in this hand or do you go broke here?

Assuming you call flop, is there any way you can fold this turn? It's probably the best card in the deck besides an A or K.

Probably not. Most of the hands I post, I lose the pot. Much more likely I made a mistake in a hand I lost than a hand I won.

flawless - I am just going to start underbetting against you and 1800gambler, as you seem so eager to check-fold everytime someone bets a goofy amount.

Doubt it changes much, but I forgot to mention this was 6 handed.

You can't go broke, you have him covered.

I've got no problem with putting him allin. Remember, if he were any good, he'd have a full stack.

But if he's a guy who only raises when he has two pair or better (and only minraises), take note for next time.

This is not true. There are plenty of strategical advantages to having a short stack, and I've seen many good winning players play high stakes NL w/ min buyins.
