      I wanted to lead that flop, but the villain was short enough that if I did any reasonable bet and he raised I would have been pot committed to call so I just shoved. I do this kind of play in tournaments when it's justifiable, not sure if that's the right way to play cash games though.

      And when I checked the odds now, I actually see I was a favorite to win this one. I would have even had good chances against AJ. Interested in what you guys think anyway.
