      Correct thanks :)


      Would be so kind next time Urbanen to just post one hand per thread you create?

      If you look at the starting hand chart, the first hand where you have AK is well played

      The 2nd hand is not so well played because you should not bet this Turncard as I think you get called way too often to make this bluff profitable. SHC (startinghandschart) also tells you to continue checking instead of start bluffing

      You can consider your the A:dK hand as a monsterdraw on the Flop so I like the way you play it. The Turn you can also decide to go all-in yourself which I prefer more than check/calling

      Best regards,
      Gerv
