Winning a flip vs. Paul Wasicka

It's been a while since I busted a pro!

I'm not in love with my play on this hand. His 5-bet ship represents a lot of strength against my backraise. But I decided before I called UTG's initial raise that if Wasicka squeezed, I was playing for stacks. So I stuck with my plan.

I'm not persuaded that sticking with your plan here is +EV against Wasicka's 5-bet range in this situation, but nice result!
