      CO wins with two pairs, aces and eights (8d Ad)

      My thoughts:
      I think the preflop play is ok, the limp and coldcall means he hasn't got QQ+ or AQ+.

      Flop play I put him on overcards or a partial connection (draws, one pair) I re-raise for value and to push off draws/overcards.

      On the turn I see the worst possible card, the ace pretty much turns my hand to trash against a whole range of hands. Am I at this point pot commited?
      I decided I was probably commited and pushed just in case he had something foldable. (The $5.60 bet is of course just his last $1.60 but I notched it up higher to make it look like a strong hand)

      Should I have check/folded from the turn or was this final push a sensible move?
