      Hello qnb07,

      I don't mind actually such a play, the min-raise doesn't always have to mean the nuts, of course it would be possible to just Bet/Fold the turn just because it's freeplay but I think we often might see even worse hands there, not just straights or sets. Therefore I'd say nice hand!

      Best regards.
