No. I'd almost certainly push here.

I like a call here. If you push and are called than you are either behind or a coin flip. By playing the hand slower, he also gives his opponent more chances to make a mistake. TT is a good hand to play against a single opponent in position.

The main reason that I play it slow is that I'm in position and want to use it for effectiveness. I assume that Curtains is the better of the two poker players and should be using his post-flop skills. Even though a card higher than a Ten will fall on the flop more than 50% of the time, I'm not overly worried if an Ace doesn't fall. By playing the hand slower, he also gives his opponent more chances to make a mistake.

The $150 move by SB is the same as a limp (please let me see a cheap flop - Please)...WE DON'T ALLOW LIMPING SB's...push

I push, that raise looks like a "I want to take down the blinds while only risking minumum" I think calling is worse than folding.

push.. you have no idea where you stand if you just call. opponent could be raising j5o, what are you going to do on a j43 flop?? will be very very hard to play post flop even for a good player.

Blinds 50/100, villain raises to 150?

Anyway, TT = good hand, no extreme situations like raise+reraise or bubble with short stack... push.
