      My homework for slowplay.

      Justification: Made hand on flop. I wanted to keep my opponents in and let them hit something, with an aim to build a bigger pot.

      Hi Superbrain,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Given that one bet and one called there's a good chance that at least one hit something. However, I do agree that slowplaying the flop is a good option.

      As played the turn is pretty easy.
