      Hello deivid2,

      Your play is perfectly fine, against some tighter opponents you sometimes can even 2nd barrel there since the Ace could make easily make a weaker J to fold but I don't really expect that such opponent would fold it. Well played.

      Best regards.

      It's not wrong if you think you can play such hands profitable, later on you will widen up your range in SH anyways but I would definitely check my offsuited 1-gappers if I have HEM or PT for it, not sure if Elephant has such feature. If they are negative profit then I would likely just consider not raising them from there. But often it's of course better not to play such hard hands if you are more passive type.
