      Fold flop, right? On the turn i think going broke is fine. Villain was 65/8 1,2 over 70 hands.

      Hello Alficor1,

      Preflop: Raise it bigger, ~$0,60.

      As played
      Flop: Yeah, I'd rather Bet/Fold, even against such a min-raise. I'd rather think that they are doing such min-raises with 2pair+ type of hands than with just some draw.

      As played if flop was Bet/Called
      Turn: Now we can definitely discount the draw from his hand, and therefore the question is either he is able to do such move with hands like KQ or something similar, but as we Called the flop, then we should have a plan, like if we are going broke if another Q comes and etc, without it, better fold it on flop. So likely as we Called the flop and we get a lot more outs for us and he also could have just a Q too, even weaker trips, therefore you can likely Call for the given reason that you Called flop. Otherwise doesn't make sense, to Call the flop and then give it up on turn.

      Best regards.
