      some the bet amounts didnt work when i copyed it from poker elephant, although they are displayed correctly in the application. i did go all in on the flop though, despite raises in front of me

      Holy shit thats a massive pot. Villaisn are often on draws and we also have FH outs against made straights. We're only behind significantly to higher sets which are slightly less likely.

      Call preflop is fine imo, push flop is a must with such pot odds.

      Preflop is vulnerable though since you have to fold when someone is raising behind you.
      Nh and remove the results next time!

      Best regards,
