Default Interesting hand 10nl How do you play it?

I don't post a lot of hand here lately so I wanted to post this one since I was unsure of the best move. I had been showing good hands and had a tight image that is why I raised T8s in EP. Comments appreciated.

Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 NL Hold'em Cash Game, 5 Players
LeggoPoker.com - Hand History Converter

BTN: $9.95
SB: $10.25
BB: $13.60
Hero (UTG): $12.85
CO: $2.60

Pre-Flop: 8[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] T[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] dealt to Hero (UTG)
<font color="red">Hero raises to $0.40</font>, 3 folds, BB calls $0.30

Flop: ($0.85) 7[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] 2[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] J[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] (2 Players)
BB checks, <font color="red">Hero bets $0.70</font>, <font color="red">BB raises to $1.80</font>, Hero calls $1.10

I was fully expecting to take it down with my Cbet on the flop. The c/r is a little interesting, this player hasn't done anything like this so far but then I ma still semi new to the table. I opt to just call with my gutshot and flush draw. Any one raise? I will update on my turn play after some replies are put in about my flop play.

Turn: ($4.45) K[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] (2 Players)
<font color="red">BB bets $2.50</font>, <font color="red">Hero raises to $10.65 and is All-In</font>, BB folds

Results: $9.45 Pot ($0.45 Rake)
Hero mucked 8[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] T[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] and WON $9 (+$4.30 NET)

why are you raising T8s utg, even though 5 handed? serious question, not rhetorical.

So, I finally decided to start posting in this forum to become the worldīs best poker player some day [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Anyway, given your play I would have folded behind you if you had risen in EP since you have a tight Image.

IMO BB could be check raising a QQ or pair of J. I donīt think he has a flush draw or else he wouldnīt have really folded on the turn. When the K comes he probably guesses that his one pair is no good anymore since you reraised him. Maybe he even puts you on KK or AA afterwards. I donīt think he guesses you have a flush draw due to your overagressive play and your intention to getting him to fold by intimidating him with an overbet.

It is a semi marginal spot but like I said I was getting away with alot nad had a tight image. I like playing hands like this to exploit my image. If everyone folds I take it down if I get called atleast I am not likely to be dominated.

Flat fold pre, these guys probably don't give a [censored] about image and aren't positionally aware.

I probs shove over his flop raise.

Well I play T8 and such if I know that my raise will be pretty much the only action preflop. This was that kind of table. I wasnt worried about getting raised preflop and if I did I can get away from the hand very easily.

I'd probably stick it in the flop. This is were we have the most equity.

Between raising the turn and raising the flop i prefer raising the flop.
In fact i HATE your semi-bluff here.I think you are lucky that he folded.

*Guys thats a hell of a overbet to shove the flop.

I play this not like a spewtard

say this to yourself over and over: nl10 is NOT about fold equity, it is about value betting

plays like this lost me many buyins before i learned better

and dont raise 10 8 oop

Usually I would to. I think there is no way my hand looks like a FD and he isnt raising me with a FD so why not stick it in. When I do I get snap called and miss a good portion of the time. I decided to take a different tactic this hand. Wait for the turn. Luckily the K is kind of a scare card that I can bluff at.
