      Don't really like my calls on the turn and river. Only noticed after the hand that he had VPIP of over 80%, so maybe I should have played it a bit more aggresive, and bet on the turn and river?

      Bet more on the flop, it is drawy. 0.9 or so!

      On the turn once again bet a little bit more - 1,7 or so. You should call the minraise with your gutshot + flushdraw

      On the river you can probably c/f because on this board TP2ndK isn't that strong. However when he bets so small, just go ahead and call with those odds - we are probably good for it in the long run.

      But mainly, rebuy to 100bb!!!!! always!
