Graph of today's session.

I normally don't stack off as a huge underdog unless it's a cooler. I felt I played this hand absolutley attrociously but hopefully I won't repeat the same mistake.
I don't actually know this player nor have history with him but I have seen him play the 25 50 game and I just assumed he's a very aggresive player who is making "moves". I have no idea what his ranges were at the time and I just decided to shove.
Maybe I wouldn't make this post if he had AK or JJ but reviewing the HH he is repoping my UTG raisefrom the BB which is generally considered to be a very strong play. I think optimally I should have taken a flop. Radioheads later told me he folded JJ, had I taken a flop I would have been able to get away from this hand rather cheap - I think had he C-bet into two people on a Jxx flop I would have mucked my queens post-flop because the only hand I can beat is TT but that would be an extremley loose play on his part and after a few orbits of playing with him afterwards I quickly realized he is a very ABC striaght forward tight player - basically the complete opposite of my assumption

This hand also hurt my image a little because I overplayed a marginal hand and people thought I was on tilt afterwards (I think) so I was getting played back at more and I had to re-establish myself.

I think the lesson here is don't assume anything and don't stack off in marginal spots against unknowns based on phantom assumptions.

I took the entire weekend off to do things with family + go out - I did not play a single hand of poker during this time. Well I now have the proper bankroll for 5/10 NL. So I will play starting tomorrow.
