      Hey churchill,

      I will be mostly focusing on preflop, I don't understand why you min3bet there because he is not folding to your 3bets hence you play a crappy K8o there. Either 3bet bigger (not recommended anyways) or just fold

      Now this can never be a split pot.. you have toppair while he has midpair :f_eek:

      Best regards,
      Gerv
