      Hi.

      Based on the results u got it in as the favourite. Besides, the only hand u lose to is 66 so playing for stacks is definitely the best play.

      The main question here is whether a bet or a check raise makes more sense. I slightly prefer betting right away as my default play but i think a checkraise is fine as well.
