      I would have c/f the turn and river, but the $0.05 min bets weren't enough to get me to fold. I didn't know if BB usually plays that way, or what to tell from these min bets.


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      I am not even really big fan of raising on flop for the reason what's your plan if he 3bets you? Do you really plan to go broke there? I'd rather just Call him and reevaluate on further streets. And turn and river are fine.

      Best regards.
