What read did you have on the opp?

The flop bet is WAY too big. Postflop bets need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of players in the pot and board texture. With one opp, I want to bet 1/2 pot. Overbetting the flop allows the opp to basically play the hand perfectly (if they're competent).. as it'll fold out everything worse than me and only get called/raised by better hands.

I'd bet 3105 on the flop and if the opp shoves, then unless I have a note on them that they are a maniac, I'm folding to the shove.

The opp had been betting big all the time using his chip stack to bully all of us at the table I had actually won alot of his chips previously by being aggressive when he was trying to do it to me when I had a good hand and I thought I was going to win out against him again as I believed he had nothing again.In reality he could have had a J so I should have folded after the flop but I took the chance to chip up as at the time I was in 19th place and was trying my utmost to ft so really in my own mind it was a coin flip but he won and thats poker.I just wanted to post the hand to get some feedback and yours is much appreciated JWK
