True. After all, I wasn't the leader in the hand, since I only called his pre-flop overbet.
Anyway i went all-in on the turn and he calls and turns over two low cards, making a straight. Whoops.
What I am asking is if I could have played the hand better. I guess checking the flop could have been the answer, even if it would have given him his straight card anyway. At least I wouldn't have been compelled to go all-in.
