10's early to an all-in with 3 unders on the board is an AUTO-FOLD for me. There are way too many combos and draws (spade flush) that can beat you. The reward for winning the hand is nowhere near the tremendous risk you have of calling it.

I don't like the initial limp with it. Raise to at least 60, if not to 100.

Limping preflop is fine here. It's still super early and you want to win a big pot. You could make a small raise to 70, but I don't mind the limp. Obviously after that minraise you have to call. A raise as big as you need to make would stick you to the pot. The flop is okay. There is a bet and a shove. The shove is awful. Whether it's top pair, aces, two pair, or a set I don't like it. The set is almost never getting value from this shove either. Maybe he thinks Oneday has AA and will pay off his set? If he has a set a small raise or even a call would probably do a better job at extracting value. This really just smacks of someone hitting what they think is the nuts and just shoving it in, without thinking about what hands can call them.

Obviously fold TT here.

nits lol, I dont see anything scary, just draws.. possibly a set, with the shove.. its a tough call to make but I would more than likely call it myself, but I tend to be looser than some.. to me its all about making the final tables, and you dont get there folding a semi monster

Pso game.. stall time out fold

And I think we give the villians in these micro games too much credit.. probably had top pair and decides to shove cause he has no clue how to play post flop

Towlie...you wanna get...oh wait...I remember playing you the first few times... man I laughed a lot. .."oh wait, now I remember..that's it" .. "you remember the code?"..."no, that's the beat to funky-town...won't you take me to" ... but seriously ori..keep up the good work.

All the analyzers..Dave, JD, can't remember off the top of my head everyone..but really, really good job!!!

And all the rest who contribute..this is what this place is all about!
