I don't get it. What are the specific dynamics of this hand that call for the all-in? If it works, you're the tall stack at the table by about 1,000. A key "inflection point", perhaps. But does that really translate into an all-in with two random cards against three who have seen fit to enter for 2.5x the BB?

I would think that a good suited connector like T9s would be the outer limit if you were going to try this kind of parlay. Note that I'm not agreeing with such a move, just that the internal logic of the tactic begins to fall apart with cards like the ones you played.

But I'm interested in hearing your thoughts.
