      Hello ragney,

      Flop: Actually I don't even mind the Call here, it's not just for set but often we are even ahead in such situations, people tend to min-raise with some kind of draws, sometimes even with just TP and usually such notes help us a lot in future, therefore I'd also Call it and reevaluate turn.
      Turn: As he decides to bet into us that weakish, I'd also Call the bet, most often it's a hand, which is representing a weak hand, maybe just 8x, but otherwise could also be that he hit his FD, and now tries to trap. But for the given odds, I'd Call such a small bet also and reevaluate river.

      Best regards.
