      I've seen people limp-raising junk or low pocket pairs more often at this limit than I've seen them doing it with premium hands. Between that general read and the fact that my remaining stack was less than 2x my original raise, I had no problem pushing here. I hit top pair AND my read was correct, but unfortunately he got lucky with his (suited) junk :rolleyes:

      So I guess my only question is whether the push was OK based on this logic?
