      Hi,
      This hand is really concern me about the right decision that I shove. Even though I won a huge pot, I sit back and try to rationalize my move if it were correct. Could you please analyze my hand regarding my play?

      Hello lioncomming,

      No way I am going to fold the there anyways. They are just capable of going broke with a lot worse. Although I guess I'd make the raise a bit smaller like like $2 and anyways going broke.

      Best regards.
