Well, here's the dramatic conclusion to the hand. (Probably not a huge surprise here)....
River: ($4.62, 2 players)
Hero bets $2.97 and is all-in
calls $2.72 and is all-in
(Two Pair, Queens and Eights)
(Straight, Ten High)
Ok so first off, I think
the villain made a questionable call to my PFR, but then again it wasn't a very big raise ... or maybe it was reasonable to call w/ K9s? Uuug.
On the flop I figured I'd overbet to charge him a lot to play an OESD -- which frankly, I didn't put him on. I was thinking (hoping) more like PP or maybe AXs and he made a pair. According to PokerStove, I was beating him 56% vs 44% on the flop, which really isn't great I now realize.. Of course he lucked out, got his straight on the turn, called me, and let me dig my own hole when I idiotically shoved even though I now had a scary turn AND river card. F--k me. I think I just knew checking was probably giving up the pot.
Two questions: Was it ok to overbet the flop? And if I felt compelled to bet the turn, was betting ~2/3 of the pot showing weakness after a flop overbet?

I'm guessing that his call on the turn wasn't out of line on his part, no?
