Fairly standard stuff...

All I would say is don't min-raise preflop at least until the blinds are huge - Giving away far to much value to a hand like A7 suited, keeping the pot small meaning it's easier for them to call on flush draws and the like...

Not good. Raise more preflop.I guess you tried to make a tricky play here, hoping to come over the top, if someone re-raises yor weak raise. Don't like the flop play, too. Nice outcome tho.

Yeah I know the preflop raise was tiny, min raising early isn't ideal obviously, but if he's calling a jam on that flop he is probably calling a 2.5x-4x raise.

What's bad about the flop play? Obviously the Ah rules out all A high flushes/draws, and I'm raising to get him to fold hands like Kx Qx with a heart. Plus, even if he somehow has flopped the flush, I'm still drawing to outs. Obviously that isn't ideal to be behind and all in after flopping TS, but still.

yeah never min raise on the pre it is a bad habit and you should get rid of this habit if you are playing like that as you not isolating and playing multi way and playing AA multi way when on the flop is suicide if one hit and you have not you could lose all your stack. But you can min raise and wait for a big raise to raise all in or limp re raise all depends what tables you play. But always go in with aggression and initiative so always bet and raise and dont limp mini raise. Good luck mate!

what is this talk about raising more ?
if you are opening , you should always raise the same amount with 10Js or with AA
bad players would min raise with an average hand but when he hit something good he would raise more , which is one of the most obvious tells
but usually you should raise 3 Big Blinds (180) with every playable hand so you don't give the Big Blind a cheap look at the flop
you did nothing wrong , that is poker

Another crazy hand and it never ceases to amaze me that whatever the unlikelihood of things happening, if you play long enough you will see all sorts of different scenarios. At least you didnt lose the hand!

Ouch! At first i thought you would be showing an opponent with suited connectors hearts, beating hard on your american airlines, but what happened was bad in the same! Just when you thought you caught another one, there comes the table ruining our hopes (at first) and making us feel less bad than we started (at second, with that blessed-for-you river).

other than preflop raise gone wrong, theres really not much you can do vs Q8o, thats a monster of... monstrous proportions.
