      Hello jeszkar,

      Preflop: Rather isolate preflop with your hand and even having position. :)

      As played
      Postflop: With the double-GS it's even considerable to Bet the flop to avoid getting any spots where you have to decide either you can Call on the turn or not. But otherwise seems to be fine, you can even raise it bigger on the turn.

      Best Regards.
