Against that range that calls your flop shove (hate it btw) you have about 42% equity, which is certainly more than enough considering dead money and his stack size. I hate the shove because if we shove he might fold a few hands we have really great equity against but if we check he'll almost certainly bet his entire min-3betting range (assuming there is such a thing). So by shoving we're getting it in against only the strongest part of his range but by checking we get to play for stacks against all of it.
OP read this, then read it again. And by read it I mean really read it and understand it. I'm not having a go, just saying that there is too much of a tendency sometimes to justify actions based on the outcome of the hand. Irrelevant. You won the hand, which is good of course, but you want to be comfortable with analysing similiar situations when they come up again.
I, along with a lot of players am guilty of reading some posts in the HA section without truly understanding the concepts - once you get out of that mindset then you will really get a lot more out of here.
Of course, I'm not saying take everything as read, by all means argue points, that's what it's here for. GL.
