Yup. In limit hold em when you have a monster hand, you should always jam the pot (bet and raise every chance you get). That's exactly what you did. Nice job!:)


I don't see how you could have made more from your aces -

The best thing you did was you diidn't take your foot off the accelerator when the 2nd queen hit - good job.

I like it.

Which rivers do you check behind?

Also, what's your plan if you get 3-bet on the turn?

Which rivers do you check behind? Learning here still. Not too sure of when to do this.

Also, what's your plan if you get 3-bet on the turn? I would cap it with just a call here.
