      Is there anyway I could have played this differently and avoided getting all my money in? Should I have folded to his all in?

      Hello clandestineAl,

      Well the problem is the nitty guy. Who has been going to showdowns 11% of the time. Do you really see him going broke here with a lot worse if you go for Check/3bet even? Doesn't it look too strong? I'd be inclined even to Call the flop and reevaluate further actions.

      Just getting it in directly will scare away a lot of MP1 holdings and he most likely will continue only with very strong hands.

      Best regards.
