      I like your thinking here and think you lost the minimum well played

      Imo it's a bad mindset when you try to "lose the minimum".
      It sets you up for losing sessions because obviously you expect to lose and just try to cut the losses as much as you can.

      Go ahead and "win the maximum" instead.
      For instance in the current hand if you expect the c/c to be the least losing play, then don't do it - search for other lines instead ;) .

      As for the hand:
      Preflop and flop are fine.
      On the turn generally it's possible to c/c in order to bluffcatch, but unless he was playing back at you before (not somebody else on the table), I'd assume he's not doing it now either because he's a 17/12 player - there's a reason he's so nitty.

      Once you do c/c, you'd do it with the plan of c/calling the river again.
      However, when he bets so small I'm definitely not c/calling the river. This is almost always a thin valuebet, so by calling a weak made hand you play directly into his hands.
      So the options left are c/f and c/r.
      I don't like a c/r too much because we cannot rep too many hands and he might just bet/call with an overpair because he thinks his small bet induced a bluff (or he's not thinking about it at all and goes with "overpair => call" ).

      Thanks for the quick evaluation. I also think i should have fold the river.
