So true... A lot of people have read a bit about poker either in a book and online or have watched poker on TV and armed with that bit of knowledge they think they can take on anyone. As we all know a bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing!
The all in could only have been a semi - bluff to try and get you off the hand, gambling that you only had a pair and their flush draw / Ace hit if you did call.
You will see a lot of this especially from the people that think they can bully the table with big bets. Your play was spot on and he made the mistake...and thats what we want. We make money when other people make mistakes.
These type of players can be dangerous however as it is very difficult to put them on a hand.
