I would like to try and post here significant hands, good or bad (will give them NUMBERS so you can refer to it) and I ask for feedback / quick evaluation - is it bad play/ good play/ good luck/ bad luck?
Not sure this can be done - just giving it a try - see if it will help me.

I took a chance - not proud of the play - I think I was lucky - probably would have folded in a significant BI game
