If you arent raising TT on the button with 1 limper in, what the hell are you raising with? Not raising pf is a major problem you need to change.

Theyre so many good reasons to raise this flop, you are too passive

If the people involved do indeed have you covered, or you're about even, then playing this for set value in this position is fine. The problem pre-flop is that no one has shown any strength, so while it might sound a bit odd, I'd mini-raise this particluar hand pre-flop for two reasons. 1) You'll likely knowck out one of the blinds that may flop some silly two pair if there's all unders.
2) You'll have shown some kind of strength and there's a better chance it will get checked to you on the flop.

If you 'miss' your flop but have all under cards here and the board isn't too coordinated, and someone leads into you, then you must make it a minumum of a pot sized raise here. I'd even suggest slightly over, so that you're setting a tone here.

The turn is ok, but a pot size to 2/3 bet here is good too. River is fine.

Thats my line.

This is the standard line. Raise, and keep betting until that king comes out, then use position and check behind.
