Default Live poker is so different

Decided to play some live poker yesterday. First hand at the table, 5-handed and everyone is a regular so I know them all somewhat. 2/5 NL, stacks 1000 all around.

I raise red 33 to 20 UTG, CO (tight regular makes it 75 to go). BN (fairly TAG but with a few tricks regular) hems and haws and then finally cold-calls. Blinds fold and I call. Yes, this is literally the first hand at the table (wtf).

Flop comes Kd Th 3c. (230 pot)

I check, CO checks, BN bets 120, I call, CO folds.

Turn is 9d. (450 pot)

I bet 250, BN instashoves for about 600 more, I instacall.

Yes or no on this whole hand?

Everything looks fine to me. Pretty standard. Let me guess: He showed you QJ?

This is fine, as is leading the flop. This is better than c/r flop imo.

check-fold flop, he has TTT, SO obvious..












ok I was being sarcastic you played it fine, I can't imagine hes tight enough to only push KK or TT there.

They are worse in a different way, for instance there's a whole group of players that only raise AA (and sometimes) KK preflop making it easy to play perfectly against them.

Seems like an easy call. Although if he is really tight he may only make this move with higher sets. There's no way he is reraising QJ pre.
