      Hello winmaster76,

      While facing a min-raise preflop I would take into account that those kind of hands might be very strong when they aren't that good players. They could easily be trying to "trap" you with some higher overpair, therefore I would rather fold it on flop since I didn't hit my set and that was my main plan anyways there.

      Usually when people tend to bet pot on flop and even into multiway pot it's often times pretty strong move. What hand do you beat there?

      Best regards.
