i think i butchered this hand,played it pretty horribly

shudda raised bigger on the flop, means a bigger bet on the turn, with stacks being so deep.

question is:
anyone calling the river? and why?

Hi wikked,

I think your play is fine on all streets tbh. I agree on raising a bit bigger on the flop, but your raise size isn't butchering it imo.

I am always calling the river. We shouldn't be worried about straights from the preflop raiser here, AA and TT are the biggest concerns but it's a pretty industrious turn call with TT. He's just as capable of showing up with AT, A9, A7, A5, AK, 77, 55 (some of which should have probably played quite differently). Commitment decisions... I am willing to commit and play for stacks on the flop as I think it will be profitable to do so. Nothing really changes that through out the hand, if he's got AA or TT then nh, unlucky.
