Players play these types of hands due to the implied odds
attached to them. Hands like these flop pretty well and when they do hit, you often get paid well. This guy used that and hit hard and you fell right into the trap of not considering what his range was. You saw your own two cards and were basing all your decisions on that.
Also look at his line, call, check, check/call, check/shove and you say he is a tight player. So add the two together and what does it tell you?
