      Hello lukezo,

      Preflop: Those kind of min-raises are usually traps with KK/AA and that's often the case. But while he really is giving us that great odds and our hand is pretty strong I'd Call as well.
      Postflop: But I don't really like the raise here, we are just turning our hand into bluff. So therefore at the best I would Call the flop and reevaluate it on turn or while even not having the Q then might be possible just to fold directly while his pot size bet is way too strong.

      Best regards.
