      Hi Sinnology

      Can you please remove the results in your future hand posts. We simply judge your hand based on your play rather than the results because if we have to judge hands based on results we have to say fold preflop because AQ dominates KQ ;)

      Now your hand is in my opinion well played as your bet on the Flop commits you more or less which isnt necessarily wrong

      Best regards,
      Gerv
