All right, I call the raise PF because I think the strength of my hand merits seeing a flop if it's only 2BB (about 1/13 of my stack). Then on the flop the initial raiser checks, and an alarm goes off and part of me goes "ugh, you have an overpair you assclown." The other part goes "yipee I have an overpair."

I bet the pot (which I DON'T like, I think it's entirely overplaying my hand and I need to bet 1/2-2/3 the pot). I'm suspicious of the PF raise followed by a check on all low cards, but I don't have a solid enough read to whimper and go hide. Also, I was trying to make a strong enough bet so that one of these limpers wouldn't get cute and push me around with KJ/AT etc.

Only one caller (leader folded, so no overpair there), turn is safe so I push. Too aggressive for a non-premium hand or a good line?

As you noted, I would bet 150 on the flop. The 270 commits you. Other than that it's all totally standard.

Thats pretty standard. He probably has a draw so punish him, and hopefully he doesn't get lucky.

I don't like the bet on the flop. Too big. Could CR all-in here too. Meh, your choice.

With your line, easy shove on the turn.
