      There is David Slansky's Fundamental Theorem of Poker:

      "Every time you play a hand differently from the way you would have played it if you could see all your opponents' cards, they gain; and every time you play your hand the same way you would have played it if you could see all their cards, they lose. Conversely, every time opponents play their hands differently from the way they would have if they could see all your cards, you gain; and every time they play their hands the same way they would have played if they could see all your cards, you lose."

      Can you see why your hand reminded me of this?



      btw: Usually it's better not to post your opponents' holecards here.

      Easy ship imo. NL5 two-pair = broke for me.

      Hey Ott,

      nice hand, no other way to play this except you could raise full potsize on the flop. After you get raised, push is a must. 2-pair = the nuts.

      Please, don't post results when you post a hand on the forum for objective feedback.

      Regards,
