Let me explain my reasoning behind me thinking he had pocket tens.
People automatically assume due to the fact that this is low limits that players are such donkeys that they would bluff off their 100 bb stack on a missed flush draw.
Most of the time, the guy has it.
The reason for this is think of what he's thinking in his position, if he has a missed draw maybe he would bluff pot or even a slight overbet, but would he really risk his stack?
His point is to make you think he missed his draw or is a donkey bluffing, and due to this you call his massive overbet. Whenever a player overbets that large I laugh too myself and think of how bad a bet this is; because he just lost his value out of me. Most of the time, unless I know the villain, he'll be flipping over the nuts.
Btw, pretty bad beat here.
