Need constructive comments on this hand, especially from Smash because you know limit really well.Playing at Pacific .25/.50, they don't have hand histories so bear with me. First of all, the players here are so loose passive that a turn or river raise often means 2 pair or a set, they are not aggressive at all.Pre-flop:UTG: foldUTG +1: raises to .50UTG +2: foldsME (Qs, Qc): raise to .75MP +1: calls .75CO: foldsButton: calls .75SB: calls .75BB: foldsUTG +1: calls .25Flop: 3c , 9h , 7hSB: checksUTG +1: checksMe (Qs, Qc): bets .25MP +1: calls .25Button: calls .25SB: calls .25UTG +1: calls .25Turn: 4dSB: checksUTG +1: checksMe (Qs, Qc): bets .50MP +1: calls .50Button: calls .50SB: calls .50UTG +1: raises to 1Me (Qs, Qc): calls .50MP +1: foldsButton: calls .50SB: calls .50River: JdSB: bets .50UTG +1: raises to 1Me (Qs, Qc): foldsButton: foldsSB: calls .50UTG +1 shows: 10d, 10h (Pair of Tens)SB shows: As, Js (Pair of Jacks)SB wins: $11.45Right after I folded this I wanted to vomit, especially when I saw it would of held up. Was this as bad a fold as it looks? The check-raise got me thinking a set or two-pair and then when SB leads out with a bet on the river and is raised I am almost certain someone has two-pair or a set. Should I have just called even though I thought I was beat because the pot was so big?I think I really need to buy SSHE now. I'm still learning so any advice would be appreciated.Thanks in advance.
