I'm sure I went wrong somewhere
This wasn't a huge loss, but how can I lose less on this hand? Thanks for any help, Larry
Not really possible to lose less in that hand unless you folded preflop. I like playing AT suited on the button.
PREFLOP: everyone folds to the cutoff and the cutoff bets $15 your on the button and you call with AT suited. OK call because cutoff could be making a move because everyone folded and your AT suited is a decent hand.
FLOP: Q high flop and preflop raiser checks and you check behind. Good move on your part.
TURN:: another heart giving you the nut flush draw so you call the $34 bet. Nothing wrong there.
RIVER: gives you a pair of tens and the only card higher is a Q on the board but the preflop raiser did not bet the flop when the Q hit so it is less likely that the preflop raiser has a Q so it is kind of a easy call.
