      No pre-flop you probably going to ask why I bet here and my reason was I
      1) I wanted to play the hand as sticking to my normal tight range players where just folding whenever I bet
      2) I didn't just call as I read somewhere to not ever call UGT (at least bet)

      anyway preflop aside hows was my play post flop. This is the first hand I have posted and I am coming back to the beginners course as tables ain't going well £100 down.

      Hello jsparkyk,

      Welcome to the NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Well, of course it's possible to play such hands but you gonna face way too often difficult situations. But at least you folded the Ace here which is already a good sign and you somehow know what you doing. :) Well done! Although what I'd ask here is if we can really get value on the turn from many hands? Only some GS are willing to pay there. :(

      Best Regards.
