This is my 1st post here, so, if more information is needed, please let me know. The community here seems great and I hope this starts some discussion.
First, a bit of history. I am a winning, recreational, low limit live player. This hand happened at an indian casino in the Inland Empire. The game is 2/5 NL with a capped buy in of $300. The stacks sometimes seem to dictate the action in these games, however, the players make so many mistakes the game can be profitable (but perhaps unbeatable if you are a full time player because of the rake).
Up to this point I had raised all in on a four flush board (with the nut) and did not get called and had shown a bet fold on the river with two pair to somebody with a flush. The villain had only shown 4 hands, two flopped sets and two complete bluffs. He had played all 4 hands almost exactly the same. He is a younger kid (like myself, probably around 25) and actually seemed to be a thinking player, which is extremely rare in this game. The third player in the hand was a short stack who was playing badly, calling river bets with top pair no kicker, and passively chasing draws.
Short Stack $90
From UTG +1 I raise my standard to $15 with Jc 10c

BB Short Stack calls
Flop is Ah 10d 3d

I'd like input on all streets. I feel like I made a mistake on the turn, and maybe even the flop. Thank you in advance. This may be a simple math question, but I'm not quite sure.
Bart, if you'd like to discuss this on the show I have a reliable skype connection. Thanks!
