I was card dead pretty much all game. This was only chance i got at seeing a cheap flop. Was i right to shove in this spot ?

absolutely correct to shove the flop. I'd have gotten the chips in so fast it'd make their head turn!

great play on the flop. The board was draw heavy, and betting less would've given good odds for players to continue drawing for a straight or a flush. Unfortunately there is not a happy ending to this hand since he sucked out. On the other hand, if you would've bet less on the flop, and the river came another Q giving your opponent an evident three of a kind, then it woul've been tough to fold since you would've probably been pot commited.
Good play bro!

LOL

After reading around it come to my attention that bad beats like this is a good thing! As I made a player call my whole stack whilst I was ahead. So now I just take a badbeat on the chin and concentrate on the next hand.
