Is there a question? Pretty standard play.

Hi sapines1001!

With pocket 10's in the SB, I get a limp from the button. I'm definitely going to raise here and a standard raise to 2.5BB+1BB for each limper would be to 2100, but this is also very close to pot-committing me. Due to this, I'm more than happy to jam here over a limper as I should be well ahead of the limper's range.

I actually made a very similar play with 99 last night, but it was a cutoff limp and I had 1BB less in my stack. I lost a race to AJs with mine, but it was the correct play.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
