Re: Interesting situation, check my math

I think you math is right. The comment of the other players and dealer is stupid. I presume you had sufficient pot odds even with one less out on the turn.

The OP asked how to be great.

Re: Ugh, Really bad play by me

I think if you are going to play this hand, you should just re-raise all-in pre-flop. Out of position, it is too tricky to play after the flop.

Whether you do play is a judgement call.
