I don't think you have much to brag about here. You flopped the nuts and didn't manage to get all in. With villain's exact hand you were never going to get any chips from him until he made a straight on the river, but you're missing a ton of value by slowplaying in general. On this board, my line would be bet-bet-shove, to make sure I get a full double up from hands like AJ or better.
I also don't understand why you only called villain's raise to 2400. You have the best hand possible on this board. Re-raise all in and get maximum value.

Bracelet Winner

Gota agree with Arty on this one. After flopping the nuts though is there also maybe a case for checking the flop and then betting and shoving the river? Just another line that maybe we could take.
