      Hello ratje2000,

      Welcome to the English 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!

      Here is some help for you how to convert hands and post them in correct format: link.

      Why do you over-bet like that on the flop & turn? From what do you think you get called? :( There ain't going to be many hands and vs any hand which shoves like that you will have a split at the best.

      Best Regards.
