I sit down in seat 7 with $200. On the third orbit, I get dealt 10-10. In early position, I lead out for $10. Seat 8, seat 2, and seat 3 call. Flop is 10-J-3 rainbow. I check, seat 8 bets $17. Two calls before it gets back to me. Pot is about $90 and I raise to $40. The table was playing tight. I thought seat 8 would call at least. To my surprise, they all folded. Would you have played it differently?
Two orbits later, I get dealt A-K on the button. Seat 6 bets $10. I call and so does seat 8 in the SB. The flop is A-7-6 rainbow. Seat 8 leads out for $15 and I'm the only caller. The turn is a 10, he bets $25 and I call. The river is a 10 and he bets $35. I'm thinking that he has an ace. His river bet is kind of small and it gives the strength of his hand away. I like the 10 on the river a lot. If he had A,x then some of the time it is A-6 or A-7. The 10 on the river counterfeits him. I raise to $90. He called and showed A-7. How would you have played it?
