My read on the villain was that he hadn't chased a draw all game (unlike the others), so I pushed the flop with TPGK. My results-oriented perspective says that this was a bad push, especially given that two of the shorter stacks were passive with "fit or fold" tendencies on the flop (no semi-bluffs, always checking scare cards, not a single check raise the entire game).

Your thoughts?

You didn't expect to get called by a hand that you beat, did you? Make a smaller bet and fold to a raise.

Thanks for the response. The fact that your reasoning went through my head was a good thing. Too bad it was miliseconds after hitting the Bonehead Move button.

Btw, I couldn't get the converter to work for Stars.

Thanks again.
