      I was very curious to see his cards.

      What is the chance of running into this kind of situation?

      Maybe I was too aggressive?

      Hello madden08,

      Preflop: Fold such hands preflop, I don't recommend to play them at the beginning of your poker learning career.

      As played
      Flop: I don't really get what was your plan with min-bet, I'd just make a normal bet, either near pot or even pot. As he raises you, then I might even consider just calling, he will have hard time to Call you with a lot worse.

      As played
      Turn: Also if I plan to raise here, then I'd do it a bit bigger, ~$0,50.
      River: Should be fine. Although sometimes you might face here 5x as well.

      Best regards.

      Hi,

      I put him on top pair and I wanted to provoke a big raise so I can go all in plus some value from the two checkers in front of me.

      Thanks.

      Nah, I don't think that they will raise for the reason that you made a smaller bet, it's micro stakes, people don't think that far there.
