      Hey man,

      Wondering if I should have played this different?

      He posted deadblind so I immediately thought fishy, and then his min-raise over that made me think it too.

      I put him on KJ, AQ, 99+ something like that.

      Thanks as always

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      You mean you put him on such hands postflop?

      About he hand:
      What worse hands would raise you on flop? And as well while you don't even know him. I see only reasonable hand what we beat here is likely a KQ and not even sure either he is raising with them. Therefore while he is somewhat unknown to me I might even consider Bet/Folding while I don't expect those people that often to make such a big raise with a draw, rather a made hand.

      And very often such a min-raise preflop and showing aggression postflop is usually a stronger hand than weaker one.

      Best regards.
