      Hello redwarf01,

      It's kinda close for the given reason that he ain't even full-stack. But I guess going there broke ain't that wrong while he doesn't have the full stack. Although often times such min-raises are pretty strong. And even if he rather is a passive player then I might even fold it on turn, might even sometimes give it up right on flop, depends on opponents. And if you betting the turn then I'd as well go broke vs his stack than Bet/Fold it, while we get too good odds when shoves.

      Best regards.
