Well now that everyone has posted their thoughts ,
He was holding 89c and was actually equity wise ahead of me on the flop .
Villain was deepest stack on table and after knocking out one player he proceeded to open his range even wider , flatting raises from weak players. His post flop aggression was generally consistent regardless of whether he'd flopped sick or air . Villain was very mindful of position and exploiting and was always willing to put players to decisions very quickly . This is what inclined me to play the hand this way , I dont really regret playing it this way because it played out the way i thought it did and he was holding kind of what i felt he had after his check raise on the flop anyway .I know i've learnt from some of you guys the value of surviving till much later , but its easy to have the benefit of hindsight
As the hand played itself out i wasnt thinking about surviving , i was just thinking of maximizing my edge . Thanks for all the solid replies guys , made it a learning experience .
yup i'm button
