Default 2 Pair tickle-push

I tickled the Flop hoping someone with a King would protect against the straight and flush draws. prattjasonm took the bate so i moved in on him.

Clearly the results weren't so good, but what do you think of the tickle-push concept? Also how did my Toppair/Bottom pair stack up against hands that someone would be likely to re-raise me with on that flop?

Obviously I am taking a big risk of giving someone a free/cheap card, but it seems like this is compensated for ((maybe?) by those times someone with AK/KJ/KT etc. takes me all in.

Thanks.

Don't minbet flop. Bet t100.

Not losing your stack to KQ or a set here is awful.

Yeah. Your luckbox is broken too, you should have rivered a 3.

Agreed. Not much you can do about this when it happens. The flop bet was okay... I would've likely chackraised there rather than your tickle. I still would've lost my stack here with a checkraise though.
