      Fold preflop.

      You better don't steal without stats/reads. Also stealing on these limits isn't a good idea, you better wait with that until you reach NL50.

      As played you have no choice on the flop but to go broke.

      Well played.

      Of course it may have been played badly if any of the following circumstances occured:

      1) you were being over-aggressive on this table
      2) players behind you had low foldbb / foldsb to steal

      In stealing situations you can even ommit the strength of your card. Of course it's better to have a hand of some value (as you did, hitting top pair commits your, you did well), but the more important factors are your image at the table and players behind.
