Looking back on it, I agree with everyone...that was an easy shove. I really wussed out there and gave him too much credit. I guess at the time I was thinking that I really didn't want to race against JJ or QQ and obviously I'm way behind AA and KK.
He ended up showing AcQc, so clearly I made a very big mistake. The good thing is that I can admit my errors, correct them and never make the same one twice. All part of the learning process....once again, thanks everyone.
I think this is the correct word for your question, because you "viewed" it as a big bet. You are probably playing a little scared money poker. A few more lessons like you had, will probably help that (along with a good BR).
