I am hoping some of the pros here can just clarify I'm not missing anything profound here. I have watched most of the HSMTT videos on this site and note you guys handread well and pick your spots even when having a big chip lead.

5 Tables left in the daily Big $162. Villain in this hand is a successful regular. Prior to this hand I had him marked him as a good regular (I have 3 colors, top, good, and decent). I notice a lot of marginal to bad regulars get deep in big tournaments and try to win every pot in the tournament by opening absurd frequencies.

He is running around 38/35 at this table over a small sample. Given we are probably the 2 best players in the field and he doesn't raise flops much, it's very conceivable I lead a strong range. So I liked a lead line rather than a c/c or c/r.

Obviously this hand tilts me because I think his play is terrible and seems like just button clicking to try to win every pot. He's not at the level of the pros here where I would give him credit for soulreading me and bluff-raising turn to protect his equity versus my "obvious air heavy lead" so I'm just double checking I guess.
