      Hello Ghartman,

      Preflop: Don't flat with such gappers, especially when you don't even know the opponent.

      As played
      Postflop: I don't like the Raise size here, most likely I'd go for pot size raise and which would be = ?. :) But of course I am raising and protecting my hand.

      Best Regards.
