He did check the flop, and the other guy bet $20, he said.
Anyway, I might like your play here, and I might not like it, depending what your reasons for playing this way was.
If you were raising him all-in believing he had a higher pair and that the combined chance of him folding and the chance of you catching the straight was +EV, then I love it.
If you raised thinking you had the best hand at the time, then I'm skeptical.
But if you did consider high pocket pair, but not AA (after all, he would have re-raised preflop with AA, wouldn't he?), then your play was great. Considering how long you put him in the tank and thinking the right action through, he had a difficult call - and he was probably many times close to folding the best hand.
So, well played - but was it for the right reasons?
