So i opened this hand because in my experience zoom play is much tighter than regular play. It's unfortunate that the really short guy shoves but since the other guy and I are deep stacked I called.

The flop comes out really great for me but given the action I wasn't really sure wether or not shoving was the right play. Once he raised i figuered he could have either KQ, AQ of clubs, a set of 4s and maybe some other kind of draws.

Was it OK to shove here or should I just have waited untill I made my draw to get the money in? If a 9 or an ace were to come my hand would be pretty disguised so he would stack of easily.

I'm not sure if JTs is an open from UTG in full ring, though I personally would do it, because I like high suited connectors like JT.

Rest of the hand I think is pretty perfect aside from actually shoving flop rather than leaving a little behind. You just have so much equity against a lot of his range and he is clearly interested in playing his hand too.
