      Villain was new in game, so I had no stats. When he min-raised on flop I thought he was probably bluffing, so I re-raised. When he called me and turn didn't bring anything, I tried to keep pot low, so I checked, hopping he will check behind. His big raise surprised me somehow and having no idea what to do i decided to fold.

      How should I play this hand?

      Hello Samo2,

      I'd rather CBet such flop or as played such a small Check/Min-Raise doesn't make sense at all, if you want to raise then do it properly, ~$0,30 or something similar. Otherwise Check/Fold the turn. Of course an option would be to Check/Call the smallish bet and reevaluate turn.

      Best regards.
