Good answers, everyone - many different viewpoints as how to play this. In retrospect, one could argue that I should have checked on the flop and called a pot-sized flop bet (costs me less money to see turn) - although I think sallv711 would have jammed this pot after my call, looking at how it turned out.
Anyways, I decided to jam here - knowing that these types of hands make you look like a genius when the hand holds up, and makes you look like a donkey when it doesn't...but I'm almost always willing to gamble with them.
