It does look like the Outlook plays hell with the line feeds.
Why not get the hands from the history file on your disk, though, they work well from there.

I liked seeing you push on the turn and not waiting until the river. If you waited, then 44 or 55 can draw to a straight or two diamonds can draw to a flush, without being charged the maximum to do so.

You mean the flop? everyone was all-in on the turn.

I like to slowplay with a set of the top card on the board, because i know 95% sure I have the best hand.

The hand was played quite well.

The effective stack here was small enough that your somewhat smaller than standard pre-flop raise over the limper did not really hurt your chances to stack someone off here with your premium holding. Were the stacks deeper than they are here, you MIGHT have been better served raising to 3BB plus 1 BB per limper (30c to go), but with a $1.09 effective stack that could open the way for some of these guys to leave the pot cheaply here. KK doesn't MIND "thinning the field" some, but with a very short (22BB) effective stack you are still setting yourself up with an easy flop decision with the smaller raise size here.

I like the small lead here too (20c) after the shortest stack checks to you. With top set you are pretty "bullet proof" on this dry board, as the only strong draw threat (45) "should" have gone away to a raise given the small implied odds in the shortest stack, as well the short odds potential in your just 40BB sack.

Your 20c lead is sort of a modified "slow play" really, that can look at LOT like a weak "stab" on continuation, but unlike a true slow play you are adding SOME value to the pot if you are called. It would be good to note that versus very aware players this may not work as well; that 1/4th pot bet looks suspiciously like a "call me, call me PLEASE, or even RAISE" sort of bet, and can get you folds you do not want here, but if you are against aware players this is a play you can "balance" by bluffing sometimes, as well as making it for value, to better conceal your true strength.

I love your shove over the short stack jam on the A. There is no real reason any longer to continue with a slow play, as doing so with 3 straight cards on the board opens you to straights coming for people with a 4 or 5 in their hands (granted, the likely hands those would be are few, 44/55 maybe). Stacking 1 player here is fine, so you really do not WANT anyone else coming along for "cheap", plus your 91c shove over the jam is less than full pot so it does not appear suspicious due to its size.

That A is the "key" card for you really, as it is likely to have hit the ranges of players who called your pre-flop raise, then stuck around to pay your small flop bet. Sure, it DOES complete a straight if a villain holds exactly 45, but we have already covered how your pre-flop raise and the stack sizes make that hand less likely to be here.

You not only stack the short stack (who caught an under-set for a pretty big cooler), but you ALSO stack thru a bigger stack who calls on his top pair hit and gut shot draw. That leads to a big win, exactly how it should happen!

Well done.

You bet the flop, but you pushed on the turn. Pushing is what put everyone all-in. Betting, but slowplaying the flop with top set is something I'll do alot if the board texture is right for it.
