      Everything looks fine to me, until that minraise on the flop. I can call it, because i get great odds. On the turn he bets half pot, so odds aren't that great anymore, and now, even if I hit I won't have nuts so I folded.

      Hi staktas!

      Yup, not much to add, I think it was a nice hand. Re-raising the flop doesn't make much sense at these limits and you are indeed getting great odds for a call. Since you don't hit on the turn it's an easy check/fold - both because the board paired and because even if you hit you only have one more street to extract value and you are out of position... so nice fold.
