      Opp's stats not available since sample size is small.

      My opp min raise me which makes me feel suspicious + he only have half stack. With that said, I decided to re-raise him and prepared to go all in versus such players.

      Pls correct my play if you think it's a bad play.

      Hello slashng,

      Usually such min-raises are traps rather than very weak hands. But while he has only like 40BB then it ain't like a very big mistake to go broke. Although if you want to go broke then just shove directly because we will be commit anyways on flop.

      Safest play would be I guess to raise/fold because he as well is doing it vs UTG1 not like vs CO/BU. At the best we get anyways a coinflip.

      Best regards.
