Thinking about it some more it just again seems like a WAWB situation. and I can tell you the main reason why I made the bet...
Because I am OOP and if I don't, he will
It didn't consciously register at the time but think this is a blocking bet disguised as a second barrel. I HATE
to check call. If I checked in this situation then I am putting no more money in but I have KK!
To me the likelyhood of him having an ace is small and I want to get to showdown. I know it is going to cost me matching the rest of his stack but I feel I HAVE
to go all the way.
At least betting out gives me some fold equity.
LOL its all academic anyway as he has 55 and a made the house after the turn!
I suppose even if I never find a way to accept that barrelling the turn was wrong there is comfort knowing that he played the hand badly calling my pre-flop raise for an optimistic set mine with barely 10 times its price left in his stack.
