Default 2/4, J8s trips on flop, my plan fails

I have been playing LAG and getting a lot of respect. Most pots I raise I get one caller and take it down on flop with a pot-bet. I had a big stack two hands ago.

MP is 30/12ish. When he raised the flop I felt it most likely an overpair, which would not call a push. So I called planning to check/push the turn. However he checks behind. Ooooops. What do you think?

Seat 1: UTG ( $421.60 )
Seat 2: Hero (UTG+1) ( $304.90 )
Seat 3: MP ( $966.10 )



Dealt to HERO (UTG+1) [ J [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] 8 [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] ]

UTG calls [$4].
HERO raises [$18].
MP calls [$18].
UTG [$14].

UTG checks.

HERO bets [$25].
MP raises [$75].
UTG folds.
HERO calls [$50].

HERO checks.
MP checks.

HERO is all-In.
MP calls [$211.90].

What were you doing not potting the flop if you've been potting every hand up until then? If they have an overpair you want this pot to get big fast so you can get their stack in the middle. Lead the flop for $50, if you get raised you can get all in easily, otherwise just keep betting.

Dont get tricky...bet the flop. if your going to play a LAG style you have to bet your big made hands as well as air.
