      Considering the texture of the board and the fact that the BB only called my raise, which could have been as a defence maybe, was the correct play to push on the flop after the min-raise.

      Also, i know the pre-flop bet was only .85 as i was using the pot button on FT.

      Cheers,
      -Steve

      Bigstacks will often bluff raise you on such boards which you will likely miss.
      eg: paired boards, lowcard boards.

      So i think he will raise any Flushdraw, any 8, any Queen + many bluffs with Ace-high.

      You just need 33% Equity to push the flop.
      So it's an easy all in here.

      Hey Bulldog,

      What would you be afraid of in this pot? With your overpair you are good to go, no matter what villain does.

      Hi steve,

      I instant shove, mostly he has a PP as well but much lower than your Kings :)
      Chances of flopping 2 Queens while having a queen in your hand is ''not huge''

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Thanks for all the comments people.

      It was good to find out it was the correct play. In the end the vilian showed AQ.

      Oh well.....shit happens :D
