Is this what happens now in 2014 rather than 2010, micro zoom, no reads:

Villain's turn bet was a semi-bluff then the river bet a busted draw?

Also there is my 3-bet call and the re-raise came from the bb. I did so in position but is that too loose?

Had a feeling I was being pushed around so probably shouldn't make these calls in the long run?

Hi Forrest,

I don't like the preflop call personally without any reads, it's hard to know how to play this profitably post flop.

As played I like your call down. SB can be value betting some better hands like sets and bigger tens, but also some worse hands like T9, T8s, and thin value with 99, 88, A7. And there are a ton of draws possible, all of which brick on the river. We could easily have been calling the turn with a flush draw here, so there's reason for busted draws to bluff the river.
