      Flop: Is it OK to call a minraise here and reevaluate on turn? Should I fold if it was normal raise?

      Turn: His bet is so small again I think I have to call. Or not?

      Hello Oly0909,

      Flop: It a lot depends on the opponent, how passive he is and etc. Of course such a min-raise could mean a lot, he could have like weaker Ace, better Ace or whatsoever. He may also have any kind of draw there with he is min-raising, therefore I even don't mind to Bet/Call there and reevaluate turn. Sometimes if the raise is bigger and we are more like against a passive opponent I often times prefer to fold to avoid any further mistakes we can do playing OOP.
      Turn: Kinda close although doable since he is giving us so great odds, most of the time we are hoping him to bluff here, otherwise we don't beat much. Just curious, what did he have?

      Best regards.

      He had AKo, no dimonds.

      Got at least a good note on him that he raised you with AK on such a board. :) Sometimes even worth Calling.
