      The 3 bet on the flop is on the large size and might force out marginal hands that you want to stay in. Apart from that once they 4 Bet just get the money in.

      Hello phidelity,

      Preflop: Fold it here. :) You ain't hit enough to play such hands profitable, and either you don't know the opponent.

      As played
      Flop: Likely play as you played, going broke.

      Best regards..

      Should I fold it even if I'm in the big blind and there's a minraise? I find folding to minraises when in big blind very hard unless I'm holding pure trash...

      Oh yeah, it was a min-raise but still, I'd say it depends a lot on your postflop skills, if you can get away from TP and such hand and understand when you are behind and when not then sure, go for it. But just to avoid hard situations with your pair, I'd rather just fold it, ain't nothing wrong to Call the min-raise. We just time to time have to play back on him to play such hands profitable, therefore we have to know the opponent.
