the proper play is what ever puts the most money in your pocket. looks like it was played pretty good to me. If you bet more do you think Stickyweasel would have called it still? Maybe you could have gone all in and Stickyweasel would have still called. Maybe Stickyweasel had a boat with pocket pair that paired the board? What was his table image at that point and what was your table image at that point. I think that would have alot to do with it too.

at the time of the hand I had no read.
I didn't want to chase him away with too high of a raise just want to know if you had no reads on the player what would have you bet to maximize you winnings.

A little small for my liking, but certainly not bad. If he was drawing and missed, he's unlikely to even call as low as 250 (unless reads say otherwise), so I don't think betting a little more hurts there. Since a hand played this way that would call 250 tends to have at least a pair of queens, I would think that having gone this far, he'd call something like 400 (less than 1/3 the pot... still a small bet). Plus there are rare times when betting too small might actually make it harder to get a call, because it's so suspiciously tiny that it begs to be called and may suggest a big hand. Anyway, I'm just being nitpicky. Very nice hand.

I don't think I like a push here even at limits this low (barring reads). Even here, I think most hands that call a push are going to raise you on the river anyway (trip 7s, slowplayed straight, full house), in which case you get it in regardless. *shrug* Perhaps I overestimate.
