      BU its a kinda fishy, VPIP 88, PFR 24, AF 4.0, but got only 33 hands.
      I saw him making calls with second pair.
      BU was IP and I already invested a lot, but a fold might have been better.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Hello diutza,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      About the hand:
      Preflop: Basically I would squeeze even bigger here at least $1 and not really give respect to such a min-raise.
      Postflop: The big problem actually lies preflop that you just gave great odds for set mining. But because we are against such a station and even somehow aggressive opponent then it's pretty marginal. I might bet the flop a bit smaller and then reevaluate my bet size on turn, like $1,50 on flop. But as you went for the bigger bets then I would likely go broke as well there while he may easily even have worse Ax in his range.

      Best regards.
