That's what I was thinking when I did it. Like I said I didn't really know what size to make the reraise there....so I went for something like pot size which I thought would be pretty standard.
In fact I thought if I made it smaller it might look like I really wanted to keep him in and that might actually make him fold, so I went over the pot so it might look like I was trying to scare him off. But obv we are both committed at that point if he stays in.
I guess ultimately I'm just feeling really lost bcs I keep getting my ass absolutely handed to me even with what seem to me to be strong hands. So I'm wondering if there was some way I could have done things differently so I don't end up with all my chips in with the worse hand.
But when I have a flush heads up I feel like getting all my chips in is absolutely what I should be trying to do.
I'm just completely mind****ed atm I guess.
