      Hi,
      :( I just want to know if this was the right thing to do here. I knew I had a gutshot chance after the flop but with 2 callers I couldn't justify a continuation bet (or could I?) so when the Q came on the turn my thinking was that I had top pair with a kicker above a J so all-in. Was this the right thing to do? I have just had a run of decisions like this going wrong. Is this just a natural variance or am I showing in-experience I wonder?

      No other way to play this hand.

      Fact he had QQ is just a cooler, but results aren't important if your play is correct, so please remove them because it can affect people's opinion that discuss hands and hand judges don't like them either. :f_wink:

      I hate results (if I lose :D )


      Well you got a cooler but in fact if you spike toppair on the Turn multiway, the best way to maximize your expected value is to bet/bet/bet ;)

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Hi, thanks for your comments on the hand.
      I am new to the forums and had read the rules and so on but did not see that results should not be posted ( I have since seen this in the guide :D ) otherwise I would not have included them. However I will not include them in future posts. Sorry if I annoyed anybody and thanks for letting me know.
      Vix.
