Nope, not imo. Reraise more pf and convert your hand prepost.

solid play. if the guy called the 445 after the flop, he'll call the rest after a blank comes. Might play it differently at higher stakes, but not in a freeroll

I agree with chuck, played fine, you could reraise more PF, usually 3 times but you could probably go even higher in low stakes or freeroll and get very weak calls.

Not sure why you need to convert your hand prepost. Most HHs are easy enuff to read, and I'm not sure the converter make them all that easier to read, for a few reasons, maybe me olde skool.

Anyway, back to post, too aggressive for what? What are you supposed to do here? check the fl draws? bet another 425? The check is plain silly. Betting 425 is pretty useless, as you are pot committed, and taint folding for your what, other 530???? Are you seriously thinking of making a value bet here? Because, I doubt that is happening... Wait, your villian has some chips, so they have won some pot(s) already.

Stepping back from this, what are your expectations here? Do you think your hand is good? and wanna dblup? do you think your hand is good and want to extract the most chips possible? Nevermind, you have very few choices/plays to make. I think the allin is fine.

But also expect, you take down hand and don't get paid, a good thing.
Expect to get called by an inferior hand, that can outdraw you. Fl draws, TPTK, or even some other wonkiness, not a bad thing, usually a good thing.
Expect to be WAY behind here, ppA, ppK, ppQ, set.

Look at how villian has played this hand:

EP, limps, another EP+1 raises to 40, you reraise to 105(well, ok...), and they flat call??? who does that?

They check-call your flop bet. humm???

They check the turn to you??? Hard to put them on a hand...

As freeroll at the beginning of the match the quality of the players is well bad, you explored very well against the adversary with its over to pair

Heh, yea convert UB hands they are really horrible to read.

TBH if you shoved P/F I wouldnt fault it, knowing freerolls. ( I shoved QQ preflop in the stars 100K on the first hand and got called by AK, KQ, AJ and 88) But yea raise more preflop, flop is fine, turn is fine.

I probably would've shoved preflop because it's a freeroll, I think you played it fine the HH is kinda tough to read though.
