      Hello mikkelpusen,

      And welcome to the forum! Great to have new faces posting the hands, hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. It helps a lot to improve your poker and also move up the limits and fix the leaks. :)

      What kind of game are you playing? MSS? If BSS then add to full stack.

      About the game, I'd just 3bet preflop and otherwise with your stack hitting the TP+GS I am going broke and likely just shoving directly not making the min-raise. There are still worse hands, which may go broke and also we might have cards for improvement like an Ace.

      Best regards.

      Unlucky... he wouldn't fold his top pair top kicker + gutshot any way probably.
