      Hi guys,
      Maybe I was too fast with that raise on the flop or maybe it was too big? I was putting my Oponent on AQ actually, can't see any other hand in his range which would have played the same way. So I decided he is not getting away after raise on the flop and I raised it pretty biggish. Was that a mistake?

      Opp: 14/14/2.3

      I would maybe call here (about 50% calls 50% raises). Flop is pretty dry, so he hasnt much draws here. It is BB vs BU so he could be making just a move here and he could be continuing on turn.
      Your reasoning to raise big is good, but I would still make it smaller: about 29 (you are commited with this also and maybe a raise below 30 scares him a little less).

      Overall I would say that nice hand, your opponent just didnt have a hand to call you.

      since you´re getting it all-in if he has there flushdraw then really you don´t need to protect your hand
      So I also like bet/call on the flop and checking him on the turn
      This line often is if you have 66-JJ and he can try bluff you out that hands or just shoving Qx for value
