Question Super rich cold start

My '89 accord has been running fine for a couple months now. But now anytime i start it after it sets for at least a hour it runs really rich for a few minutes then its fine. Anyone have any thoughts? I just don't want to wash out my cylinder walls.

What was it doing before - wondering if related?

Does it seem to be choke related or is there "gas" getting into the carb when it sits?
