      I make standard call pre-flop.

      He makes C-bet on the flop. I min-raise trying to look like a cheeky re-steal.

      Should I generally just call and let villain bluff the turn, or should I raise more?

      Hi phildini,

      my advice would be: raise way bigger on the flop. What if he calls, and the turn is a 9 or club (not 4c ofcourse :P ). Then you could get into very nasty situations OOP if he suddenly gives action. You just don't want him to draw that cheap (he has to call $0.25 in a $1.2 pot to look see the turn, which is very profitable with for example a FD).
      I would raise to about $0.9

      Hello Phildini,

      Don't like the min-raise that much. If he has any kind of draw you are giving him very good odds for a draw. If you want then rather just raise it normally.

      Best regards.
