      River: ($4,40) 2:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $4,40

      Flop: Since his bet is so small I was thinking about raising to $2, but I'm not sure what to expect in 3 betted pot, so I decided to raise/fold, not investing much money.

      Turn: I know I'm not folding for $0.45 and I don't want to raise him any more, so I'm trying to see a cheap showdown now.

      Hello Oly0909,

      Preflop: It's kinda close, although sometimes I might even get it in if I have some reads on him that he has done such min-raises a lot. But definitely Calling is an option as well, although I wouldn't get fancy with the hand postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd rather just Call it on flop and go for pot control. And otherwise I'd Call the turn as well for the given odds and rather Check behind on river than bet for value since we can't be sure that he ain't slowplaying or something similar.

      Best regards.
