      oponent raise in flop means that he also have ace, but i have big kicker that i think call is the right move. But what about turn?

      Hello Belgas,

      Preflop: Against such a minraise I'd just 3bet here with our positon over him.

      As played
      Flop: Depends on the opponent, how loose is he, how aggressive is he, is he able to go broke with just Ax type of hand but as we played pretty passively preflop then I would even consider just folding here since CO is showing a lot of strength, at least has a Ax type of hand, maybe even a set or better. But for example if we would have done 3bet preflop then we could easily go broke here.

      Also take into consideration that on such limits people tend even to go broke with just Ax type of hands and I often see going broke there ain't wrong, if you have reads on the opponent that he is pretty loose.

      Best regards.
