      Hello everyone!

      Here is a hand I missplayed (was a bit tilting from last few hands) .
      Anyways, here's what I thought at the time:
      Pre: standard
      Flop: didn't want to call, because it might kill the action if the turn is a diamond. Therefore I raised.
      Turn: Probably just tilt, but I still had the nut FD, so I guess that's why I shoved it.

      What do you think?

      Thanks in advance :)

      The play seems to be ok to me. If your opponent had set or flush he probably would have shoved flop. I don't see many hands that crushes you and still not going all in on flop. And you always have 20 percent chance to win the hand.

      Problem is that you´re deep, so you can just call him down, but aces and nut fd I think raising and getting all-in should also be fine.

      Best regards,
