Don't know what the stats were on the players as this was yesterday but given the cards that fell I felt this was the only way I could play it. Was I correct?

I'm a sucker for combo draws.

Played fine imo.

Just thought I'd share that I looked into some numbers on this hand.

It is a really 50/50 hand against most hands that he could have. The only hands that dominate you and even then it's not completely more like 65% are trips and a higher flush draw. But there are just so many hands he could have here, that it's near impossible to put him on anything specific.

However, the check raise is rarely done with a strong draw from what I've seen (hat off to him if that's what he had), so I'll put him on AK/JJ/22/KJ/other random A/K/J hands, trying to bet you off a draw.

With plenty of money already in the pot and a near 50/50 to win the pot, looks like a good move to shove.
