      Hello BigAl123456,

      Nah, actually we don't have to Call. We could also raise him there. :) But ain't recommended against this kind of opponent who is that loose. Also with Calling we could put ourself into difficult situations sometimes and for even avoiding that, I'd rather just fold it. We have only few clean outs and even with them we will never know where we stand. So either I'd raise it up or just make a weak fold.

      Best regards.

      I don’t understand how we can fold the flop for a Min Bet. If we raise and 4Bets we will have to fold, so is it not cheaper to just call and revaluate the turn?

      hey BigAl

      its a tricky move but if we re-raise his min raise on flop he may fold...maybe he dont have any heart in his hand.imo its better to re-raise on flop than just call

      crodady already explained a bit. He will just fold a lot weaker hands and also we will often get us a free card also on turn, he will likely Check behind even if he Calls our raise. With Call we will not find out anything about his hand. Also I would take such a line against min-bet on not a monotone board. Often it's a weak hand though, which they are min-betting.
