      Hello BigAl123456,

      I'd CBet bigger on flop, ~$0,14. And against the min-raise you can likely Call and reevaluate further streets. But as played I'd just give it up on turn to the pot size bet, he will very often have there a strong hand. We often are behind. And as you mentioned you beat QT but there aren't that many combos of them.

      Best regards.
