      Please tell me, in general should i fold here? Villain is unkown.

      I know this is a basic situation but im new in short / midstacking. The mss guide says betbetbet with overpairs but minraising 90% means 2pairs or better.

      I'd make it a bit bigger preflop, 4bb seems too little against two limpers. On the flop it's a bit big c-bet for this board, $0.25 would be enough I think.

      I'd probably go broke after the minraise, it could be done by BTN with hands like JJ+ and AQ as well.

      Hey yakuzamoon,

      I agree with MeanGreen to raise more preflop 5 or even 6BBs for being out of position.

      Postflop 2/3 potsize c-bet would be more than enough for such a dry board, you could even make it 0.25$. And as far as it goes for the minraise, he can easily do it with many worse hands than yours or even as a bluff and there is no way to fold your hand there. Therefore bet bet bet according to the articles for max value.

      Best regards,
