Deep-ish 5/10/20 EUR set OOP
      04/03/07 08:18 AM

6 handed 5/10 game, straddled most of the time.

Villain is aggressive. Also, the following hand went down earlier:

Villain (3k) opens for 40 UTG. Good player calls in SB. Villain c-bets 60 on a dry board. SB makes it 160. SB bets 300 on a blank turn. Villain makes it 1000, SB folds.

Hand in question:

I (5k) am BB with TT. Straddle, call, Villain (a little under 4k) just throws in a 100. I ask 'raise or call?' Villain says he wanted to raise, but forgot to say the word. Dealer confirms. I just call the straddle? Straddler checks.

(I didn't want it to go call-call-big reraise)

Flop: QJT
Pot: 85

We check to Villain, he bets 80. I make it 280. Fold, fold, he calls.

Turn: 4
Pot: 645

I bet 300, Villain makes it 1500. I?

The 300 was because of that other hand; didn't want to scare him away with a bigger bet or c/r.

So I guess I got what I wanted, but then got scared. Comments on the rest of the hand are appreciated as always..
