      Because there was a min raise I 3bet, the min raises normally have trash in rush to try for an easy steal. Anyway so I get called no information on the player. Should I have folded to the turn bet even though it was very small compared to the pot size?

      pre: Unless You have read on him just call.

      flop: cbet flop ~0.45 and give up if he calls.

      turn: without reads fold. If You want to raise make it ~0.65 and treat it like pure bluff.

      Hello samlar,

      Preflop: Since it's NL5 I'd prefer to just Call his min-raise, it will be hard to overplay an unknown opponent being OOP. Don't put yourself into marginal situations.

      As played
      Flop: As I was PFA I'd just CBet such flop and if he decides to Call then you can likely even just consider Check/Fold. Don't even get the line why you decided to just Check/Fold if you were 3betting preflop.

      As played if turn was Checked
      Turn: Is just horrible, you don't make much to fold with such Check/Min-Raise, as you played that passively just Check/Fold the turn if you didn't want to CBet.

      Best regards.

      best advice from the 2 guys up here: call preflop!

      You are bound if you hit the set for it to be the best hand, and one of the two to make a draw or a hand that will call you. If you hit the set bet on all 3 streets. If not, cbet/f and c/f the turn if a 6 doesn't show up.
